  • In 2012, there were an estimated 1.7 million immigrants to the EU-27 from countries outside the EU-27. In addiction, 17. million people migrated within EU-27.
  • Over 40% of non-EU-born population in the EU is at risk of poverty.
  • In most countries, the risk of poverty is much higher among children with a migratory background.

With this training course, EYCE will seek to address these issues, as well as exploring the potential role young people can play. The training course will aim to facilitate understanding about links among migration, social exclusion and poverty, and empowering young participants to take an action in their context to alleviate social exclusion and poverty.


We invite you to this EYCE training course “Faces of Poverty” in Manchester…

  • to explore and analyse the links between migration, social exclusion and poverty;
  • to raise awareness on and provide the knowledge about the different types of migration;

  • to equip the participants with the necessary skills and methods to address negative effects of poverty and social exclusion;

  • and so much more…
