The OSCE Mission to Serbia is in the process of implementing the project “Preventing risky behaviour among school children in Serbia through sports and education” funded by the Italian Government. The overall goal of the project is to contribute to crime prevention through investment in early education and sports. The project reinforces the values among the young such as mutual respect, non-violence, inclusion and tolerance towards all kinds of differences, including gender.
The purpose of the project is to support the schools and local communities in Serbia to develop the programmes to include the children who are falling behind the school curriculum and who display early signs of risky (anti-social) behaviour (drugs abuse, bullying, peer violence, discrimination etc.), with the aim of preventing them from being susceptible to criminal behaviour.
The OSCE Mission to Serbia seeks proposals from civil society organizations (CSO) that will help in supporting the schools in six cities in Serbia to continue with and/or begin implementation of programmes to include the children who are falling behind the school curriculum and who display early signs of anti-social behaviour (drug abuse, bullying, peer violence, discrimination, etc.).
