With the aim of continuing to strengthen local systems of protection of rights,, literally classroom of human rights, is an e-learning portal that COOPI, in collaboration with UNICEF, has decided to dedicate as a free service to citizens. On the platform, with free access, you can find courses, videos and educational audio on the subject of human mobility.

Currently, hosts a course that aims to train users not only on the concept of human mobility but also to provide better assistance services to migrants and refugees in Ecuador.
