TLG

Give Them the Chance to Give Something Back!

TLG is partnering with 360 Trust to take a group of 12 disadvantaged young people to Uganda to work with street children at a local project. The young people were all excluded from school & have battled with behavioural difficulties to successfully re-engage with education & want to help others.

  • Only I could change my behaviour. I had to see there was more to life than just behaving in that way.

Situation

Up to 10,000 young people were permanently excluded from school in 2010. With young people experiencing issues such as family breakdown, parental substance abuse and being in care, the need is great to raise young people's aspirations and give them a vision to live with purpose. There is a great need for young people to experience life beyond deprivation and see they can positively contribute in the world, and realise what they have themselves.

Solution

TLG will take 2 groups of 6 young people (12 total) to Africa to help a local project working with street children. The young people will experience basic living and will teach, support, develop activities and help with practical work around the site whilst with the project. The trip will be an opportunity for them to experience a different side of life and an opportunity to really contribute and make a difference.
