In brief

The SOL Foundation assists Jugend Eine Welt in the Bo district in Sierra Leone with a sport programme to meaningfully engage and support youth in today’s rapidly changing world; there, due to idleness, many youths are forced into crime, early pregnancy and drug addiction.

Problem to be tackled

Poverty in Sierra Leone. Vulnerability is evaluated based on socioeconomic factors. These factors include for instance the children’s health risks, the condition of the communities in which the person has lived in, the family relations, the children’s level of poverty, source of livelihood, level of education attained or reasons for the discontinuing education.
