Kitchen Renovation in downtown Brussels - 4000,00€

In cooperation with RENOVASSISTANCE

Renovassistance renovates old buildings to provide disadvantaged families with decent, healthy housing at low cost. GEH is supporting a project in the heart of Brussels between Place St Géry and Place Ste Catherine. The ground floor is a meeting space where, every afternoon, volunteers welcome deprived local people living on their own. The four upper floors will be renovated and divided into two 2-bedroom apartments and a duplex with 4 bedrooms. They will house three very poor families (income below 80% of the threshold to qualify for social housing). This project has been financed thanks to the generous donation of Solidarity Subcommittee Stage Fall 2010.

Follow-up report

Fight the digital fracture In cooperation with FOYER DES JEUNES DES MAROLLES (Belgium) - 3520,00€

Set up in 1961, the FJM has almost 200 more or less regular visitors – young people aged from 6 and 26, mainly from Maghreb or central Africa.

The FJM's goal is to support these young people in their personal and social development, through a welcome and listening programme, and projects (also intended to prevent youth offending).
The digital fracture project is for secondary-school children (12-16) attending the after-school homework club run the FJM since October 2010. Increasingly, the children need access to IT tools for their schoolwork. In addition, high-quality computers and other equipment are needed to run graphics and audio-visual software for projects that young people are working on with assistance from FJM staff. This project has been financed in cooperation with Schuman Trophy.
