A lack of the youth’s socio-economic development.

Local partner

Fruits of Hope & Development Initiative’s project promotes the youth’s socio-economic development through the power of sports and makes them self reliant and useful members of the society; it includes the organisation of sports activities for the youths, specific support for the youth who have received skills training on small business management initiate own small income projects and the support of environmental conservation initiatives in the community that are undertaken by the youth.


The beneficiaries are children, adolescents and adults aged between 12 and 35 years, 50% male and 50% female including children with special needs. The majority of the participants share an underprivileged and low socio-economic background.
