The Azimut project of Oxfam-Québec
Bring young dropouts from the local area to meet young people from developing countries, through an internship in international cooperation.
What is the Azimut program?
Oxfam-Québec has partnered with ‘The House of Jonathan’ to create Azimut, an innovative project that brings young dropouts from the local area to meet young people from developing countries, through an internship in international cooperation. In eight months, this program supports young people and brings them to empower themselves through responsibility, perseverance, independence and commitment.
The origin of the project
Today, almost half of the worlds population is under 25 years and young people are too often excluded from issues that concern them. The people from both developing as well as developed countries, are often clueless and lacking direction in relation to their future. It is in this context that André Sauvé, a volunteer spokesperson for Oxfam- Québec, wanted to create the Azimut project.
The objective of the program?
To enable young dropouts to overcome their difficulties both personal and family, school or social and, ultimately, allow them to take over and continue their education.
The first results
The first cohort of Azimut was born in September 2014 and consisted of nine young people with learning difficulties aged 14-17 years. They were trained for five months before their first experience of living abroad: a cooperation internship in the city of Sucre, Bolivia. Since their return, they are unanimous ... this experience has really changed their lives!
