Our approach

About

Solidarity is not just a word. There is nothing more powerful than a group motivated by working together to achieve a common goal. Many young people already know this and engage in this philosophy in numerous contexts whether it be with friends, youth groups, or at school. What if we could assist these young people in their fight for a more egalitarian and just world? A world where human rights would be respected? But how, and where would we start?

Based on our experience in the field

Over these past decades, Caritas International has assembled a host of information and experiences. This information is based on what is going wrong and on challenges both small and local and international and local. But our experiences have also taught us how to best organize in order to offer ideas and solutions. In the way that we can collaborate with our partners in Belgium and abroad in order to construct a more just and egalitarian world. But most importantly, in the way that our youth and students here in Belgium can participate in the construction of this world.

Public

Our projects are principally geared towards students in their second or third degrees of secondary school and their teachers; however, our projects could also suit a public that is not in school.

Our themes

Based on our work on the ground in Belgium, we first and foremost work on themes related to migration, asylum-seekers, and refugees. In addition, we can broach topics based on our international development work in the South (food security and agricultural development).
