Education for Housing Swap – Empowering children from deprived neighbourhoods

In socially deprived neighbourhoods, public authorities tend to find it difficult to provide quality education. This is where the social enterprise Tausche Bildung für Wohnen (“Swap education for housing”) jumps in. It engages young people as youth mentors who live on-site in deprived neighbourhoods. Its award-winning model now is replicated in other cities.
