New project for the Human Right to Education starts in Mexico

With a grant from the European Union, the DVV International Regional Office for Central America, based in Mexico, will coordinate a new project regarding the human right to education. It starts in March 2014 and will run for three years.

The project is aimed at indigenous groups in the southern provinces of Puebla, Chiapas and Quintana Roo. It aims to develop monitoring and evaluation concepts at the local level in conjunction with the groups involved in order to monitor the implementation of government Adult Education programs.

It is also about access to public information for these specific groups. With this project, the civil society sector is to be strengthened and a forum created in which the most marginalised indigenous groups can articulate their interests and can bring them to the notice of government agencies. DVV International is the only non-Mexican organisation in the tender round that has received an acceptance of its bid.

The project is conducted in cooperation with DVV International’s longstanding partner organisations: Iniciativas para la Identidad y la Inclusion, Communidades de Apprendizaje Campesinas y Indigenas and Educacion, Cultura y Ecologia.
