Support for studies
Many young people are hampered in their educational progress because of a lack of financial means. Some of them have no financial assistance at all.
Caritas Luxembourg has set up a dedicated fund for them. The aim is to support them in their choice of course - the period when they develop their plan for the future - their studies and their training, on a temporary basis and in very specific cases. Each request is analysed in detail.
For example, assistance may be provided for school enrolment, costs relating to studies, buying equipment, extra tuition that may be needed, help with living costs (housing and food), etc.
The ultimate aim is to prevent these young people from breaking off their training and adding to the number of young job seekers with no qualifications, which is already very high.
