Areas of Intervention

What ought to be done to combat the alarming statistic that six generations are needed today for a French citizen to escape poverty while only two generations are needed for a Danish citizen1?

Our deepest conviction is that this determinism can only be broken if we strive to prevent poverty amongst the youngest. Thus, our mission is to reduce the gaps between children coming from modest families and children coming from wealthy families, from early childhood to professional integration.

Early childhood

Schooling

Access to employment

Consequently, we intervene on three areas of action :

  1. Support during early childhood
  2. Prevention of school dropout
  3. Access to first employment
