In Kinshasa (the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo), the exclusion and lack of training prevent young people from emerging from poverty and marginalization.

It is a city in which more than 70% of population lives with less than 1 dollar/day. The continued armed conflicts and the lack of infrastructures difficult the access to basic services. As a consequence, many of young people live in the street, with no opportunities to access to education and, because of that, finding a job is very difficult.

After completing its last challenge to help Unicef vaccinate 8.000 children against polio in Nigeria (you can remember the project HERE), the users of Nicequest start now a new project in order to help these people.

Continuing socio-educational activity in summer is key to preventing risky behaviour and offering opportunities that normally young people at risk of social exclusion do not have access to.  This is, among other, one of the main priorities of Adsis Foundation and now the customers of PcComponentes will be able to contribute to this same cause.

These are young people who are in situation of vulnerability and because of economic limitations they do not have access to leisure activities.

Fundación Adsis works to turn situations of inequality into opportunities. During the school year, it offers emotional and educational support to children and adolescents and is also present during the holidays, to continue the work done with the children during the year and void situations of neglect and street and at the same time give young people the opportunity to have a vacation.
