It’s in the structure of school teaching, so yes. One of the projects we carried out was to bring together 10 students in the field of children’s astrology and we had 1 year to collect data where we launched our projects at the 2nd International Congress of Astrology in Portugal along with their book in Portuguese and English. These are some of the incentives we have provided.
