FCU works with a team of professionals, inclusive of a psychologist, an educationalist, a social worker, a dance teacher and two teachers.
Apart from that, (local) government agencies for child and youth policy cooperate with FCU to respect and apply children’s rights better. These activities fit in a more general vision, with regard to which FCU offers children and young people the ability to demand their rights and to work on a new child culture. This regards, for example, participating actively on a dialogue about children’s rights in so-called child assemblies.
The project of FCU will be funded at least until 2022.
“I’ve come here since I was five years old. When I come here, we eat and then I make my homework. In general I get good grades in school. The psychologist asks me how I am doing, how I am treated at home, what I like doing. I made friends here. We play football together and I learned to not fight others, for it is just a game. I feel happy here and I learn a lot.”
