Summary

Our project helps 500 underserved youths from at-risk communities across Southeast Asia who are dealing with issues of poverty, school drop-out, drug abuse, persecution and lack of educational opportunities, to obtain life skills and develop themselves personally and professionally. We teach English, Computer Skills, Personal Mastery and Entrepreneurship, which provides our young people a bridge into further education, better employment and entrepreneurship opportunity.

Challenge

There are 1.1 billion youth in Asia today, and 20% of these young people still remain uneducated, unemployed and untrained. Although there are various government initiatives increasing literacy and empowering youths across the region, many still fall through the cracks of the education system, especially those who are poor. Our project targets at-risk communities in Southeast Asia (social issues, school dropouts, poverty, and poor education quality) and provides them with life skills education.

Solution

Young Lives provides a life skills education (English, IT, personal mastery and entrepreneurship) in order to provide social mobility to youths at risk in Asia. Upon graduating, they have a better chance at better employment, are linked to further education opportunities, and can embark on microentrepreneurial ventures. They are also trained to be leaders who serve their communities and society.

Long-Term Impact

We will impact 5 at-risk communities in Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia and Philippines, educating a total of 500 youths per year, helping them to rise out of poverty and have social mobility.
