Helping disadvantaged young people achieve their full potential
We empower disadvantaged young people escape a vicious cycle of poverty.
We give them the self-confidence, skills and experience they need to get a job or start a business of their own.
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.
