The "Colour Fest - Giving wings" will take place on 6th June. Its aim is to raise funds to the education of children and youngsters at risk of dropping out of school through an innovative and adapted teaching/learning method.
MACA believes and considers that an adapted education is fundamental. An education that focus on the individuality of each student, using innovative methods and diverse tools. Education promotes, develops, empowers, creates… It helps to live, cooperate and take part in society.
MACA wants to contribute to ensure equal educational opportunities, reduce school leaving, as well as promoting education for excellence.
