Lavazza and Save The Children Initiative to Empower Youths Living in Slum Areas



Lavazza, Italy’s leading coffee roaster in partnership with Save the Children organized an initiative “New Horizons: Empowering adolescents and youths in slums of urban Kolkata”. The main aim of this initiative is to combat social and economic marginalization and provide a better future to the youngsters from impoverished background in the city of Kolkata.

The initiative took place between October 30th and November 4th in Kolkata. Lavazza and Save the Children aspire to offer the marginalized adolescents a new outlook on life. The goal is to aid children coming from situations of abuse and exploitation and help them enter the labor market through training for jobs suited to the restaurant and hotel sector.

The NGO selected 15 disadvantaged youngsters between 18 and 30 years of age to be offered training courses run by a Lavazza trainer from the Turin Training Center and then to receive advice from local professionals, as part of a process designed to introduce them to labor market.

With such initiative being taken up, many youngsters will lead a new life in future.
