Securing the Marguerite Welcome Centre - Liege - 9376,00€

A project co-financed by GIVE EUR-HOPE and AFILIATYS

The association La Marguerite asbl took its name from the Liège district of Sainte Marguerite, where it has been based for several years. This area has faced a profound socio-economic decline since the early 1970s. Most of the children and adolescents in La Marguerite live in precarious conditions and receive significant help from the applicant. This support takes various forms: as an approved school for homework, school accompaniment and remediation workshops for children and teenagers; as a local integration initiative providing courses in French as a foreign language and literacy as well as citizen orientation workshops for adults and generally providing a front-line welcome for people in social, economic or moral difficulties through listening and providing advice and guidance Following a visit by the Liège Fire Department, the building is no longer compliant to accommodate the public, which would result in not only the loss of 11 jobs but also a loss of social ties for the inhabitants of the already socially fragile neighbourhood and a probable increased school dropout rate for many children and adolescents. This is the first project to be funded jointly under the Memorandum of Understanding between GIVE EUR-HOPE and AFYLIATIS. Each will provide 4,688€ towards securing the property.
