We have analyzed the material based on Bourdieu's (1999) capital concepts, where we have focused on social capital, but also used cultural, economic and symbolic capital. The study's results show that the interviewees believe that the project has contributed to integration in different ways. Where the opportunity for the children to meet other children and adults has been of great importance. The interviewees also talked about the preventive work that the project consists of, in the form of homework help. The interviewees argued that if the children develop at school, they reduce the risk of being excluded from society later in life. (Less)
