Helping disadvantaged young people achieve their full potential
Young People are facing an unemployment crisis. The consequences of which are devastating on their lives and their future.
We empower them to develop effective and sustainable solutions to secure work or grow a business of their own.
In the UK – Employability
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
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.
