Just yesterday we met two 14 year olds newly arrived, both have been provided with a phone and one of the young men has gone to state protection for a few days after our Eritrean youth worker and French Jurist helped to explain his options.

We’re now planning regular beach trips over the summer to provide legal advice whilst offering a half day holiday from the situation minors are currently in here.

And we’re speaking to former refugees here in France to provide young people with role models from their own community.

To keep the RYS van mobile, we need to pay for internet, fuel, books, translators and all other running costs. Please donate to our fundraiser for the van here.
