YOUCA action day at Brands On
18 October 2019 - 3 MIN READ
YOUCA, YOUth for Change and Action is the organization making young people aware of the importance of a sustainable, fair and solidarity-based society. It supports actions to create the world in which people and organizations take responsibility, they fight social inequalities and care for the environment.
YOUCA not only stimulates youngsters to work together for charity in Belgium and abroad, but also motivates and helps them to develop skills and interests.
On the 17th of October, Flemish and Brussels youth were once again joining forces to support charity. Instead of going to school, they were working for one day at a chosen company. Their wage was donated to one of the youth projects.
One of the main pillars of Brands On is social involvement. Especially the future and involvement of young people is very dear to us. In South-Africa, we already support ‘Born in Africa’ and the ‘YES’-project. Both projects focus on the development of the younger generation through education and work. They are all about giving the first chances to the ones who need them the most.
Today, thanks to enthusiastic Lena, also YOUCA gets our attention. She joined our team for one day to discover all the secrets of parasols maintenance and to support a charity project in Guinee.
Great experience for all of us!
