Protection and prospects for children and young people

Project in Bolivia

The aim of this project is to protect children and young people from violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation, and to empower them to build a new perspective on life. Direct measures are taken to support those affected, in order to compensate for the lack of public protection mechanisms, integration and education programmes for girls, adolescents and young adults. In addition, specific training, and measures for integration into the labour market are intended to improve employability and, ultimately, income generation.
