Red Chair Project (La Silla Roja)

An empty red chair placed in schools and classrooms symbolizes the 58 million children who currently do not have access to quality education. This serves as a powerful starting point for working on the topic further with students of all ages. This project was started in a Jesuit school in northern Spain and now Educate Magis would like to share this project with Jesuit schools all over the world.
