Twinning for VIS

With the Solidarity twinning, VIS connects schools around the world establishing contacts and relationship for exchanges.

Furthermore, VIS proceeds together with the teachers, the pupils and the parents of schools, oratories, gyms to learn about other ways of living and thinking, and to promote and protect the right to study within the framework of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Thanks to twinning, teachers and students can address the issue of interculture in the light of a real experience of relationship which, albeit at a distance, proves to be mutually enriching. The twinned classes exchange texts, drawings, or other digital material while VIS speaks about these interactions on its web communication channels.

Italian schools, if they wish, can also send a financial contribution specifically to the twinned school. This way twinning also becomes an means of solidarity and support to the right to education. The contribution of the Italian schools will in fact be destined to cover the costs of education sustained by the twinned classes.
