The School of Life

The School of Life opened its doors to welcome an average of 20 young girls who were victims of different abuses and traumas. Our choice to mix different cases of suffering is voluntary. We believe that this creates a genuine ethic of compassion that veil the eyes and knowledge of the outsiders with regards to the past of these girls.

The Program of SOL

Since 2000, School of Life offers to young girls aged 14 to 21 years old a familial and therapeutic environment which enables them to rebuild their dignity, their self esteem and empower them to find back the meaning of their lives.
The School of Life has developed a progressive integration strategy (School of Life stages) were each girl is invited to pass through. Each girl should fully cooperate on the rebuilding process designed for them in order for it to be meaningful and sustainable.
Our Actions:
  • A residential home
  • Psycho-social interventions
  • Formal education and additional formations
  • Family integration
  • Livelihood and income generating projects
  • Intervention for other youth at risk
