550 million of them
are living below the poverty threshold
of US$ 1,5 a day.
There are currently 1.2 billion Youth aged between 15 and 24.
In response to this desperate situation, a group of friends, entrepreneurs and young people in Europe and the US
decided to create Life Project 4 Youth, an organization 100% dedicated to the integration of Young Adults
living in extreme poverty and exclusion.
The challenge was to set up “Life Project Centers”
near slum areas.
By means of entrepreneurial projects operated from these LPCs, LP4Y would accompany the Young Adults towards social and professional inclusion.
At LP4Y we think Young People facing extreme poverty are capable of becoming great entrepreneurs if someone gives them a smile, a supporting word, room to grow, and trust.
