Get to know more about our world education program and the projects that need funding.

Youth charity based on education

At Apprentis d’Auteuil, we believe that the road to success is paved by education and/or training. Unfortunately, a large number of children drop out of school throughout the world due to family reasons or their school problems. As a youth charity, our aim is to support these young people to find their way back to school and to society. By providing personalised social, psychological and professional help, we can give them a chance at a better life.
Our world education program includes professional trainings in several industries like catering or the beauty sector, and is adapted to every country we work in thanks to the help of Apprentis d’Auteuil’s operational partners. Let us share with you our latest programs.

Our world education program – recent projects

Our most recent projects to fund are focused on street children in Africa. In Antanarivo, the capital of Madagascar, the number of children and young people on the streets is quite alarming. Our youth charity has teamed up with local partners in the summer of July 2013 to provide meals, a resting place and of course, educational programs for about 50 children who would otherwise just roam the streets.
In Kinshasa, capital and largest town of the Democratic Republic of Congo, our youth development charity program is at an early stage, aiming to support children living on the streets due to armed conflicts, witchcraft accusations or other difficulties. Apprentis d’Auteuil will provide education and vocational training to more than 2,000 young people aged 0-18 each year and strive to implement children’s rights advocacy solutions.

To extend these programs with further training, employment support and extracurricular activities, we still need some financial support. With your donation, you can help us improve our world education program. If you feel like contributing to our cause, please contact one of the representatives of our philanthropy department regarding donations.
