When the African Movement of Working Children and Youth (AMWCY) was set up, it soon realized that vocational training was one of the keys to success in life by offering more employment opportunities on the African continent which is globally characterized by youth underemployment.

Meeting EMG/Enda / Save the Children

From 07 to 11 April 2014, the AMWCY EMG (Executive Managerial Group) has met in Dakar, Senegal. EMG and some agents of Enda have met partners of Save the Children and discussed with them the new 2014-2016 project procedures entitled "working children actors in their own protection" which binds AMWCY/ENDA / Save the Children.
On 8, 9 and 10 April, they had working sessions with Save the Children during which they reviewed the procedures and requirements of donors so that all concerned project stakeholders follow them. April 07, members of the EMG and some agents of Save the Children (Tupuna, Katri and Amanda) visited the grassroots group of Mbao WCY . On site, the WCY (only girls) hosted a chat discussion on sexual violence against girls: causes and consequences. They also identified some possible solutions including the intensification of awareness campaigns to make parents more responsible, girls to be more vigilant and denounce the authors of rapes, inform people about the harmful effects of sexual violence on girls, etc. . . .
