We focus on at-risk youth

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.

FEATURED GRANTEE PARTNER

REACH
Vietnam

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.
