Investing in positive initiatives for the future of children and young people living in poverty.
Growing up in poverty has an impact on every aspect of the day-to-day life of a child and even on his/her future life as an adult. For more than 10 years, the King Baudouin Foundation has been working to ensure that every child has the same opportunities to develop and blossom, and to combat the intergenerational transmission of poverty.
- we provide support to organisations that give quality help to young children living in poverty and support for their parents
- we encourage meetings between the various levels of government and actors in the field and collaboration on issues of child poverty, and we stimulate the exchange of good practices at European level
- we conduct advocacy among government bodies and citizens to attract their attention to the reality and needs of children and young people living in poverty
- and we support projects aimed at children and young people at risk of social exclusion
