“The Smile of the Child” always fighting for the rights of children, decided to take on a new program organized by the EU regarding bullying at schools.
The first meeting concerning the program was held in Riga, capital of Latvia.
For making this idea a reality, “The Smile of the child” has to be in cooperation with counterpart bodies in Italy, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The triggering event of this program was the fact that there is violence among children at schools. This fact concerns all people involved in well fare and child protection.
Although bullying has been existed for years, children are being more open about being bullied.
The first step of this initiative is the research. “The Smile of the child” coordinates this movement and will go on. Although the current period brings great difficulties because of the financial crisis, the organization has no intention to stop helping.
