Laure Delaporte, co-founder of Life Project 4 Youth (LP4Y)
Laure has co-founded LP4Y which aims to facilitate social and professional integration for young people living in great poverty.
LP4Y was created in 2009 by a group of friends and entrepreneurs concerned by the situation of the Youth in the world.
Life Project 4 Youth’s mission is the social and professional insertion of underprivileged Young Adults living in exclusion (Young mothers, out of school Youth, Youth living in the street, without family support).
There are currently 1.2 billion Youth aged between 15 and 24. Of these 550 million of whom are living below the poverty threshold of US$1,9 per day and suffer from malnutrition, illness, violence and abuse…
To address this emergency, LP4Y is working with Youth aged between 17 and 24 years old living in extreme poverty and victims of exclusion creating an integration ecosystem.
- Professional and social integration of underprivileged Youth living in exclusion: 1263 accompanied Youth since 2009, and 489 Youth integrated in the decent world in 2017
- Training of trainers to social and professional integration of excluded Youth
- Advocacy for the integration of Youth at risk
Principles and means of actions
