Special attention is payed to integration programs of the most vulnerable children - those in risk of marginalization and discrimination due to minority or social background, disability, gender or social status. We widely use COMPASITO, the Manual of Council of Europe on Human Rights Education at early age. 

"Childhood is the ideal time to begin lifelong learning about and for human rights. 
And the far reaching objectives of general human rights education can be interpreted to fit the world of the young child in more concrete terms of personal experience in the community, in the family and in the personal relationships the child encounters everyday with adults and other children. 


​ As far as possible, human rights learning should connect with and enlighten what children already know. For example, although they may not use words like justice, equality or discrimination, by the age of seven or eight most children have a strong sense of what is ‘fair’.
