YOUTH DEVELOPMENT TOOLS
Young people are a critical resource in emerging market countries. As a sizable part of the population, they play a key role in their countries’ futures, yet many live in poverty, facing discrimination, violence and exclusion. We focus on three areas crucial to youth development–livelihoods, education, and health and well-being– so that young people have the opportunity to realize their potential.
We currently have more then 100 active grantee partners in 15 EM countries. Find out how they are making a significant difference.
REACH provides vocational training, career advice and job placement services for Vietnam’s most at-risk youth. Since 2004, REACH has opened multiple centers in Vietnam and now operates in 6 locations: Hanoi, Hai Duong, Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City. Training is market-oriented and includes "soft skills" that youth need in the workplace. Importantly, youth are supported in job placement and their transition into the workforce.
Our Underwriters pay for all of our administrative and fundraising costs, so 100% of your donation goes directly to empowering at-risk youth.
