Start date: Jun 30, 2015,

"Bright Future for Street Working Children" ; is a project that 22 girls and 14 boys totally 36 young people gathered under a social issue for 7 days from Croatia, Spain, Italy, Romania and Turkey to develop their personal skills, gain competence and obtain teamwork culture. In addition to that 17 of those young people were selected among the people who carries fewer opportunities in terms of economic/educationa/social.
As it is known, 5 main targets of Europe 2020 strategy is directly related with education, employment, social exclusion and poverty. It is desired that the young people will be informed in regard to disadvantageousness, Europe citizenship, democracy, social inclusion and the relation between education and employment, and also motivate young people in civic initiatives for social problems.
As the host organization, we had activities in a collaboration with the Center of Children Working in Streets and also release academic studies to public which is titled as "Qualitative Research, Evaluation and Recommendation Report on Children Working in Streets and Children Working in Ankara Streets". Furthermore we had nominated this Center, which works to stop child labor, to 2014 UN Public Service Awards to gain international recognition. The center is awarded the first place among the 445 projects. In this context we believe that we will gather European young people in a social issue to become a part of solution and carry out some activities with those children.
Young people who took part in this project from partner countries started the project with the survey results that had been completed in their hometowns in regard to the children works in streets, afterwards they evaluate those surveys comperatively during the mobility. Participants gathered with those children to have some activites as paiting, music and sports in groups that those activites help the inclusion process.
Thanks to the teamworks, the participant young people are become familier with a working environment that they will confront with in future. Construction and the Evaluation Box Activities are an endavour to increase understanding on voting in elections and duties of society. Also it is provided that those young people are familiarised on others authentic cultural values and most importantly became friends.
