"Give youth a chance". This slogan sums up the programme of the Samuel Foundation. For more than 20 years now, we have been supporting children and teenagers in their education primarily in the countries of Central America and Southern Asia. The young people all come from very poor family backgrounds and through the work of the Foundation receive the necessary means and access to a qualified training course. We concentrate on careers in companies that are desperately seeking such graduates. We achieve this by operating our own training centres which provide high quality standards, and through the close cooperation with local authorities and companies.
In this way, we break through the vicious circle that is poverty and the lack of a future perspective, and give young people the chance to define their own lives. With their own income. With self respect. With future perspectives.
