The economical situation is quite difficult in our town because last year
unemployment rose to its highest level and it is one of the highest in all
Prienai region at the moment. The school provides free coursebooks for all
students and free meals for those in need. We have got a lot of students that
have not any possibility to travel and to visit other cities and countries.
This project will help our students to observe different cultures , will provide
educational, social and cultural experience. The positive international
experience will help to overcome prejudices against foreigners, disabled and
homeless people, enhance the learning process and contribute to the development
of international competence. This project will also help to broaden horizons and
provide teachers and students a unique opportunity to extend the perspectives of
their normal working and learning lives.
