Short description:
Lapis (Italian acronym for Free Association for the Advancement of Education) is an organisation that fights against school dropout. Its goal is to give children the right to education that so many do not receive. One of its numerous activities is the project to build experimental schools following a matching criteria: one school in an industrialised county, one in a developing country. This project, carried out together with the "Danilo Dolci" Association has already gained many sympathies.
