Helping Children and Young People to Cope with Life Crises
Life crises can threaten the child’s or the young person’s positive personal development. Learning difficulties are often the consequence, just as the child or the young person is often prevented from leading a normal life with friends, family, and leisure activities.
Life crises cannot always be prevented. But the child or the young person can be supported in meeting challenges and in developing and growing stronger. This is why the Egmont Foundation supports initiatives strengthening the ability of children and young people to cope with life crises.
