ASFES's aim is to provide vulnerable people living in hardship i.e. women, children, young people and elderly people, with medical, psychological, social and professional support.
ASFES's main activities are:
- the medical monitoring of beneficiaries affected by a chronic illness or a so-called taboo illness.
- the psychological support of beneficiaries through consultations, psychotherapy and help;
- getting children (back) into school, teenagers who have dropped out into learning and young people into vocational training.
- the equipment and installation of young people in micro-businesses
- mentoring provided by the programme's Aunties and Uncles.
The Societe Generale Solidarity Foundation supports the project to strengthen the entrepreneurial abilities of and give vocational support to 22 young people of the Programme as direct beneficiaries and 88 young people and teenagers who have dropped out or do not attend school as indirect beneficiaries.
These young people are qualified in car mechanics, automotive electrics, metal welding, carpentry, high fashion, embroidery, hairdressing, mattress-making, agronomy or IT.
This project covers the training to eventual integration of these young artisans in working life by equipping them, settling them in and monitoring them.
