Description de la mission :

I Britanica is a non-profit organisation, created to integrate children of Estonia into the European society. It was established in 2004. The main objective is to provide the local children with an environment which enables them to speak at least two European languages (English and German) by using formal and informal methods. Britanica has an aim to promote international understanding, solidarity and dialogue between young people and children all over the world.

The organisation unites 50-80 children aged between 8 and 17. The children’s native language is Russian; thus, the project is dealing with the integration of ethnic minority group in Estonia.
