Empower Young People to Fight the Impact of Coronavirus

The Coronavirus pandemic has brought with it the worst economic downturn in history. 

A generation of young people today are facing an uncertain future and are suffering the effects of rising unemployment levels globally. 

Now, more than ever, we need to work together to empower young people to bring about change and achieve their full potential in these challenging times.

Work The Change

In the UK – Employability

Helping disadvantaged young people in the UK

In the UK, young people are nearly three times as likely to be unemployed as the rest of the population – the largest gap for more than 20 years. Peace Child helps disadvantaged young people make themselves employable through innovative youth-led, peer-to-peer training programmes.

In West Africa – Entrepreneurship

Reducing poverty in Africa

In West Africa, there simply aren’t enough jobs. In some parts, more than half of young people are outside the labour force. Their best chance of surviving is to start a business of their own. Peace Child is helping the world’s most vulnerable young people to develop the skills they need to do this.
