“A CALL TO CHANGE - FIGHTING POVERTY THROUGH HUMAN RIGHTS PROMOTION”
Palermo, ITALY, 7 th of September – 15 th of September 2010


A CALL TO CHANGE is a training course with European countries- France, Spain, Greece, Belgium, Estonia, Portugal, Turkey, Scotland, Bulgaria, Poland, Austria, Slovak Republic and Italy – that will gather 30 participants during 8 working days in Palermo, Italy.

The main themes of the course are poverty, human rights and youth with fewer opportunities.

The main aim of the project is to contribute to fight poverty and social exclusion of youth with fewer opportunities, which are more vulnerable. As well the project approaches poverty from a human rights perspective which is much richer and complete than an approach based on income. The participants (youth workers) will learn different tools that they can multiply in their own local community and in other YiA projects.

Two Bulgarian students won the national contest for a videoclip related to the equal access to primary education. Their prize was a 16 day visit to the African country Eritrea together with young people from 5 other EU countries. Pavel Penchev and Evgeni Todorov are third-year students in the New Bulgarian University. Their videoclip reached the final of the contest together with 5 other clips. The contest was organized by Know and Can Association under a project, funded by the European Commission and implemented in Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria.

Many children in Eritrea walk each day for 10 km to go to the bus stop and then catch the bus to school. When they are not at school even the 8 years olds must work in hard physical conditions, according to Pavel and Evgeni. Eritrea has been independent since 1993 when it separated from Ethiopia. The country is extremely poor, in most of the villages there is no electricity, many of the schools are built by foreign non-governmental organizations.
