Youth Directly Impacted
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.
Amandla EduFootball’s sports, leadership and life skills, and community empowerment programs work to prevent at-risk young people from joining gangs or becoming involved in other criminal or violent activities; provide information on health risks such as drugs and HIV/AIDS; and ensure regular school attendance. Young participants learn to respect boundaries and authority, and to become responsible and active members of society. AEF is also shaping the wider community to create a safe learning and living environment.
Our Underwriters pay for all of our administrative and fundraising costs, so 100% of your donation goes directly to empowering at-risk youth.
