In our area there are people from all over the world due to a great immigration. In our School we can count almost 25 nationalities and we can see this situation in every level of school.Together with the association Librellule, who promote the reading of books in different languages since the primary school,we decided to create a project to involve in a non formal activity some students who had school demotivation feelings and were not self-confidence. The outcomes we wanted to obtain were:

- Pupils re-motivation by peer education and mentoring activities

- Dialogue among different levels of school

- Team building

- To improve communication skills

- To improve tolerance, inclusion and aknowledges of other cultures by reading and listening traditional tales, lullaby and so on in the original tongues.
