Why support Y Care International?
Today there are 900 million young people between the ages of 15-24 and most of them are living in developing countries on less than $2 a day. Many lack access to opportunities, formal education and reliable support systems to help them fulfil their potential.
By fundraising for Y Care International you can help us change this.
For every £1 raised, 89p goes directly towards delivering training, and providing access to skills, finance and networks, to help a young person to get a job, or start or grow their own business.
If you’re up for the challenge and want to help us create more opportunities for young people this year, contact Ana Stojanovic in our fundraising team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 7549 3163 to find out how you can sign up.
