Rightchallenge is an association which promotes education and training as a means of social inclusion and equal opportunities. We believe that education must focus in the integral development of all people – independently of social status, age, or gender – in order to prepare them to intervene and participate in all dimensions of society, such as family, work, community and leisure. As an organization actively engaged with the community, one of our pillars is lifelong learning that we think it’s essential to sustainable development, to promote active, democratic and responsible citizenship among youngsters and adults.
