Access to education of vulnerable and marginalized populations in Seine-Saint-Denis

Main objective:

Supporting families in the administrative process, support educational teams with the reception of children and their families and bring children to success at school.

Context:

In France, three observations stand out: school inequalities tend to be concentrated in the most disadvantaged areas, some populations remain distant from school and stakeholders in educational institutions need to cooperate better. Although the goal of universal schooling is considered to have been achieved, these issues question the quality and equity of the French education system. Every year, nearly 98,000 young people leave the system without a diploma or qualification.

Project:

In Seine-Saint-Denis (93), a bordering department of Paris, one estimates that 600 children live in slums and that 80% of them do not have access to school. The project aims to defend the right to education of all children and to prepare them for school through a tool called “Bridge”, which is an intermediate preparation for schooling. Since September 2018, Aide et Action has been supporting ASET 93 for the implementation of a project to facilitate entry into school of excluded children. It’s about supporting families in the administrative process, support educational teams with the reception of children and their families and of course to bring children to success at school.

This project is organized around 4 axes: to allow access to the children’s school; promoting retention in school and success at school contributes to social and professional integration of families; carry out advocacy actions. For this, children and their families are welcomed in a “school truck” made available to the ASET 93 association by Aide et Action. In 2018, 49 children and 40 families were involved in our activities.
