Learning World: Ending Exclusion

Part 1 - No ID, No Education for Jats, Afghanistan

In the poor muddy slums of Afghanistan, many families from nomadic, minority backgrounds do not send their kids to school for fear of humiliation. The government has left a huge gap concerning their rights, and although some NGOs are trying to close it, conditions remain appalling for many people. We met Robina and her family in this camp in Kabul.

 

Part 2 - University Places for Roma, Spain

For young people from Roma communities in Spain, their traditions can clash with the schooling system, resulting in them dropping out or even never going to school in the first place. But a foundation is working to provide education for these young people whilst maintaining their cultural heritage. In this report we also hear a story about special educational success.
 

Part 3 - Food and Education in Tribal School, India

KISS (India) - Discrimination is one ingredient of exclusion but poverty also plays a part. That's the case for several tribes living in Odisha, in India. In this report we visit KISS, the Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences, which provides free education, board and lodging to 15,000 children. It aims to eradicate unemployment and empower children through education and vocational training.
