GRUNDTVIG - Partnership
EN: Creating of educational services for migrant parents

The project idea came from the teachers' and social workers' determination to help children whose parents went abroad for work. The problem of children left at home while one or both of the parents work abroad or in other remote areas severely affected some poorer EU and candidate countries.

The aim of the project is to solve communication problems among the members of families, whose parents migrate for work to other EU countries or to other areas in own countries and leave their children at home. While the European Commission has a number of programs and measures aimed to provide help for immigrants and their children, who arrive together with them, for better integration to the new society: a number of projects, training courses, special schools for migrants' children, the problem of left children while their parents work abroad, is little explored. Official statistics do not give an information about number of children left behind.

We believe that additional education for migrant parents will provide them with necessary knowledge and skills that will help to maintain closer ties with family members left behind.

The aim of the project is to solve communication problems among the members of families, whose parents migrate for work to other EU countries or to the remote areas of the country and leave their children at home. The main objective of the project - to develop training program and educational material, which will help these parents to keep the relationships with left children and other family members as close as possible.

In order to achieve this objective, the project will:

  1. Perform a research in regions of partners countries (LT,LV,PL,RO,CZ,TR) - in collaboration with government institutions and non-governmental organizations the data on the number of families will be collected; collect the stories of migrant parents' and adult family members' describing the difficulties and problems which they have experienced while communicating with each other remotely;
  2. Based on the results of research, training program and training materials will be developed, at least for 16 hours training course for migrant parents and their spouses. Training courses will take focus on the psychological aspects of remote communication and will provide additional information about the latest ICT tools;
  3. According to the prepared educational material, the flexible (face to face, remote, using e-mail, distance learning environments and social networks) pilot training courses for parents migrants' groups (10-15 persons) will be organized;
  4. Considering the course experience, adjusted educational material for migrant parents we'll publish in e-book in English and in languages of partner countries. The book will be published publicly on the Internet;
  5. Develop a project web site and publish the current project materials and the final outputs.

Project Grundtvig - Partnership
“Adult Education for women from rural areas in Europe”


  • Atarfe City Council ( Spain) – coordinator
  • Associazione Eurokom, Gerace ( Italy)
  • Oświatowiec, Lodz ( Poland)
  • Tosya Genclik Gundemi, Kastamonu (Turkey)


The project aims to meet the needs and build the skills of rural women over 45 years and to improve the quality of training provided by the life long learning sector in disadvantages areas of Europe. It also encourages networking across boarders through sharing of knowledge and European best practices amongst different organizations related to life long learning.

The purpose of the project is to increase the learning and awareness of obstacles and opportunities for women’s education and employment in the selected countries, promoting inclusion and assisting a vulnerable social group, often out or not interested in lifelong learning system. Through transnational meetings, the project implies local community and organizations, so that is easier to sensitize them about the varied European context. An illustrated web page, identifying good practice for managing rural lifelong learning, highlights the essential features for success. The web is used to disseminate the contribution made by both staff and learners participating in R-Train to a board range of additional organization in Europe. Through the project good practices, dialogue between participating regions will be fostered and learners will improve their mutual understanding about rural women’s lifelong learning unique characteristics and cultural background, while tolerance towards the other countries and cultures is enhanced.


EU indicators reveal that employment rate of women are lower in rural areas, specially on the age of over 45, combined with low rates of basic qualifications and difficulties and disinformation for lifelong learning access. Their role within these rural community context s is often linked to the family life and care, in opposition with the role of men, linked to public life and work. A success action plan for the empowerment of rural women requires the disseminating of values, structures and process that maintains inequalities in access to political, social and economic resources. Education plays important role in this process, because they have not achieved basic qualifications.

Objectives of the project:

  • Facilitate and increase the lifelong learning education of rural women, so that they have alternative learning opportunities and better access to the labor market
  • Improving self-perception and self-esteem of rural women over 45 years, affecting their decision to participate in adult education programmes
  • Prepare those women over 45, who are not interested in LLL, to access vocational retraining
  • Support institutions that work on adult education in the exchange of best practices and methodologies , with other European countries in the field of education and access to employment in rural areas
  • Increase mobility of rural women and facilitate their lifelong learning, letting them know that great cultural and social European context
  • Reinforce co-operation and mutual actions of training institutions that participated in the project, as well as others what will be added in future

Results of the project:

  • Collection of the good practices of lifelong learning education for women from rural areas form partnership counties
  • 4 partner meeting connected with organization of local seminars based on the project theme
  • Website of the project
  • Network of institutions interested in promoting and implementing lifelong learning on rural areas
