Youth Force

During the Corona crisis, Save the Children and KARUNA launched a peer-to-peer assistance program for young people living on the streets in Berlin.

Here, young people with their own experiences of life on the margins of society work with street children who are suffering particular additional difficulties because of the social effects of the pandemic. The Corona crisis with its social distancing measures is a particular challenge for young people living on the streets. That’s why the world’s biggest independent children’s rights organization Save the Children and the inclusive community KARUNA are bundling their strengths to launch a unique assistance program in Berlin. Alongside the distribution of aid kits for protection against COVID-19, the aim is to prevent violence and sexual abuse. A specially founded YOUTH FORCE, which includes not only former street children but also social workers and trauma experts, is there to help with the search for a safe place to sleep and to offer psychological support.
