AULA DE EDUCACIÓN PARA ADULTOS DEL CASAR DE CÁCERES
A.E.P.A. Casar de Cáceres is a small adult school situated in a rural area next to the city of Cáceres (located in the South-West of Spain, in Extremadura). We offer a formal education programme and at the same time we also offer non-formal education programmes. Between all of them, Teaching Foreign Languages to Spanish Speaking People Programme, whose name is "English Workshop" helps our students to communicate in another language giving them the opportunity of opening their working zone and mind because they learn not only the language but also the culture, songs, handcrafts, recipes, etc. Hence, our organisation deals with people with a high risk of exclusion from the job market what implies other types of exclusions such as social, what in turn implies in them a low level of self-esteem.

KADIKÖY HALK EĞITIMI MERKEZI ve AKŞAM SANAT OKULU
Kadiköy Halk Eğitim Merkezi is a fundamental organization, funded by the government which gives courses for adults in many branches in order to help them to get a profession or trains them towards their interests. It also has the important role to keep alive the traditional handcrafts because trainers and teachers working there transfer their knowledge and experiences to the next generation. Even if it is located in one of the developed districts of Istanbul, we need to deal with poverty and immigration from towns to city. Because of that, our target group consists of unemployed, people who cannot read or write, people who want to change their job and need more qualification as well as people who want to pass their time well. We also give education to people who left the formal education or people who are legally restricted.

Focusing activities for young people are to help to find their hobbies and interests, to work in groups, to work together, to share their abilities and knowledge, to fulfil their free time and to give them something useful and interesting.
