Since the end of the Second World War, the evolution of the family has dramatically changed. The same goes for the true reality of school and its teaching approach. But can the need for training be limited and express itself outside of real life? A demand for change is prevalent amongst both youth and adults who are seeking real answers to their questions. Lifelong learning becomes reality: this is training for life! There are different potential answers available. Amongst these answers, there is the Rural Family Houses one (MFR – Maisons Familiales Rurales); the Rural Family Houses are grouped within AIMFR, the International Association of Rural Family Houses).
