The project aims to meet the needs and build the skills of rural women over 45 years and to improve the quality of training provided by the lifelong learning sector in disadvantaged areas of Europe. It also encourages networking across borders through the sharing of knowledge and European best practice amongst different organizations related to lifelong learning. The purpose of the project is to increase the learning and awareness of obstacles and opportunities for women’s education and employment in the countries selected, promoting inclusion and assisting a vulnerable social group, often out or not interested in lifelong learning systems.
Through the transnational meetings, the project implies local community and organizations, so that it is easier to sensitize them about the varied European contexts. An illustrated web page, identifying good practice for managing rural lifelong learning, highlights the essential features for success. It has been sent to the last Grundtvig Learning Partnerships Call 2012.
