Espoir Jeunes’ main objective is to house, feed and educate boys and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds. Some are orphans, others come form monoparental homes and some merely come from very poor rural families living far away from a school. Espoir Jeunes pays for their schooling and provides tutoring and mentoring. Some children have academic aspirations while others want to perfect a trade and follow an apprenticeship program. Whatever their dreams, Espoir Jeunes aims to help them develop to their full potential.
