Helia Bernardo, Projektleiterin von CODE, Kap Verden, Sal, berichtete uns:

In April we started implementing some changes in the Reciclarte project in order to better respond to the children’s needs and difficulties. Changing the environment and mindsets takes time but we can surely equip children to better deal with challenges that they face. Bullying, discrimination and conflicts are a constant in their lives both at home and at school, that’s why CODE CV is allocating more hours to study support, foreign language learning, reading and writing, but also fun activities to improve their communication skills and develop their emotional intelligence  in order for them to understand and manage their own emotions, as well as recognize and influence the emotions of those around them.
