Empowering Youth with Multiple Disadvantages
Date du début: 1 nov. 2015, Date de fin: 30 juin 2016 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The youth mobility project: “Empowering Youth with Multiple Disadvantages" was implemented by the Human Rights Focus (HRF) with its local partner in Georgia, Youth Alliance for Human Rights (YAHR). The project duration period was eight months (November 2015 - June 2016) and it covered three implementation stages: preparation, activity and evaluation/follow-up periods. The main activity was the training for trainers (ToT) course in Batumi, from 26 March to 2 April (excluding travel days). The ToT course gathered 34 young people from Georgia and 2 representatives of the HRF from the UK. All participants from Georgia had direct experience of working with the young people with multiple disadvantages and/or represented this group to some extend. The project main focus was to empower those working with youth facing multiple disadavantages, share European experience in this area and initiate various youth-led activities. During the ToT course the issue of multiple disadvantage was explored and analysed from different perspectives i.e. specific characteristics, root causes, possible solutions and desirable actions from statutory and voluntary sector organisations. In addition to the theoretical understanding and competences necessary for youth workers, the project offered the participants unique opportunity to follow-up their ideas with local projects. Youth workers who attended the project represented some most rural areas and regions in Georgia. The project heard firsthand experience of young people with multiple disadvantages and despite that the term itself is not widely used, the extend of the problem remains significantly high. Both partner organisations established long term commitment to continue their supporting to disadvantaged youth living in rural areas that are typically less supported by statutory bodies. The EC programmes, particularly the Erasmus + programme, should be used more to advance the quality of life and opportunities for youth with multiple disadvantages. The UK has lots to offer in terms of experience sharing and learning in how to address this complex issue at various levels.
