Approaches for action

Children and young people should be given the opportunity to actively shape their lives. They can take part in a team leader program where they learn to conduct workshops with their peers. The skills they learn can be used in planning smaller events in their respective communities. In addition, many girls and boys receive financial support to help them return to school.

What is special

Children and young people are given easier access to school so that they can receive education and thus increase their chances of finding a job in the future. This is intended to reduce poverty and improve their place in society in the long term.

By promoting independence and combating social exclusion and discrimination, families are helped in the long term and their living situation is improved.
