Together for a better life in Romania




Promoting the social and economic inclusion of families living in the Satmarel neighbourhood

In Romania, more than 49% of children are at risk of living in precariousness and therefore of experiencing significant difficulties in accessing health and education, as well as exclusion and discrimination. This is the case for populations that are particularly marginalised and excluded by and in Romanian society, particularly in terms of education and socio-professional integration. In terms of education, the results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) tests place the country second to last in the European Union, just before Bulgaria.
