Marginalized and vulnerable at-risk teenagers have few opportunities for adequate social reintegration. ACT wants to improve the capacity of institutions and society to implement efficient programmes for their reintegration in order for these young people to have greater opportunities for a richer future.

The specific objective of this project is to provide teenagers at risk in El Kef with better opportunities to develop a self-supporting life through our partner CDIS El Kef specialised reintegration programmes. ACT plans to develop training programmes to be implemented at CDIS El Kef, in order to build capacity and to equip. We believe this will, in turn, contribute to a healthier and more equitable society.
