With The Human Safety Net for Families, we want to promote equal-life chances for children who live in poverty, deprived of opportunity. In Europe alone, over 8 million children under 6 are at risk of poverty, and 70% are on track to remain poor their whole lives.
It is scientifically proven that the first six years are the most formative period in a child’s life. These years shape what a child will achieve in school, their health, and their future career path
Parents are the key to making these first six years a success. This programme - in Germany, France, Argentina and Spain - unlocks the potential of disadvantaged parents to give their children equal-life chances.
Meet and learn
We’re creating spaces for parents to come together and learn skills to give their children equal-life chances. Parents support and motivate each other during workshops on child education, nutrition, household finance and more. Workshops are structured as conversations with the facilitation of expert coaches.
