The Association pour la Réhabilitation Psycho-Éducative Infanto Juvénile (ARPEIJ) began operations in September 1992 with the “Teacher’s Education” program and cultural activities in schools (debates, competitions, surveys, etc). In 1998, the ARPEIJ focused its activities on fighting against school exclusion and social disintegration of children and adolescents under the “Program for Preventing Social Exclusion and Education of Children and Adolescents with Psychosocial Vulnerability”.
