Disadvantaged Youth

In developing countries, the percentage of illiterate youth is 13%, with Sub-Saharan Africa’s percentage 29%.

  • In 2008, almost 74 million adolescents (10-19 years old) were not in school of any type. This represents 1 in 5 adolescents.
  • 1 in 3 adolescents (10-19 years old) are still in primary school.
  • Vulnerable young people are often excluded from educational systems.

Disadvantaged Youth

MSC provides training programs for disadvantaged youth to ensure that they are not dependent on ongoing welfare programs. Technical skills are taught that enable disadvantaged youth to develop and contribute to their local areas.

We strive to ensure access to education for poorest youth in cities and remote areas, youth affected with HIV, refugee youth, and migrant youth.
