Situation

The project addresses problems of obesity and poor diet, often the result of poverty and the lack of parental culinary skills or poor budgeting. Account is taken of the multi-nationality of local disadvantaged and socially excluded young people who attend our youth centre.

Solution

Young people will learn the importance of a good and varied diet. They will also be introduced to basic fitness. Their education will benefit through less school days missed.
