Education is a powerful way to open up new opportunities for young people and help them live fulfilled and prosperous lives. In North-Eastern Brazil, however, access to quality education is limited. Many young people are unemployed and can become involved in prostitution or illegal activities like drug trafficking. With support from TUI Care Foundation, Plan Nederland is tackling this problem by providing youth training programmes to improve local employment prospects.
