Friends-International (FI) has for 16 years, implemented projects that support children, youth and families who live at-risk lifestyles by circumstance or force.
FI links, shares best practices with and offers training to the private sector, Civil Society and State actors to improve protection and sustainable reintegration mechanisms afforded to vulnerable children.
Through this project, I hope to bring bring employment/education through quality vocational training to those too vulnerable or marginalized to acquire it.
Based on a socially viable franchise model, the project provides effective and replicable social business tools. It supports sustainable development by sourcing organic, local produce and protects local heritage by reviving traditional recipes/cooking techniques.
