Involve, connect, and teaching for inclusion: Educational community facing childhood cancer

Co-funded by the European Union

Childhood cancer is a disease that can affect any child, exposing them to sometimes very aggressive treatments, with no guaranteed success. Even those who overcome it can have physical, social and emotional consequences. All these after-effects clearly influence the future of children, their self-esteem and social relationships.

School plays a very important role in all children’s lives. They spend many hours a day, sharing, experimenting and learning with girls and boys of the same age. In the case of childhood cancer patients, it is essential that the school provides them with support for their integral development.

This project will provide pre-schools and primary schools with tools to support the development and inclusion of these children, thus improving their quality of life.
