 The last four years, in the International Program “WeC.A.R.E” have participated schools from 13 countries: Greece, Belgium, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, USA, Ireland, Canada, Cyprus, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Ethiopia and Australia. In an effort to make the International Program WeC.A.R.E. available to a wider, international, non-greek-speaking audience, during the 2013-2014 academic year we also run an all-english pilot group. This included teachers and students from english-speaking classes in Greece, Belgium and the United States.
