Delegate Abdelhamid Idrissi’s photo’s and story on the project which won him one of twenty OYW scholarships.
Positive Society exists, Adbelhamid, the founder and director, creates projects and activities for young people, who come from deprived areas and poor families, that have a positive impact on their lives and of the lives of the people close to them. Positive Society provides guidance in their school career and offer them spaces where they can come together, get life coaching from professional coaches. He sees the need of manpower and financial support that is to be dedicated to these children from deprived areas. The demand for those projects, that create the space, attention and help they need is considerable. Another important factor that he sees for the effectiveness of the project is trust. Therefore, the project team invest a lot of time in this by daily catch ups with the children so we are aware of what is going on in their lives and society. His vision is to be innovative and build a strong Foundation for young people, professionals and civil servants of Amsterdam.
Abdelhamid expectations from OYW Summit 2018: “OYW gives us the opportunity to show other community focused organizations our innovative way of work and to share the skills that we have built over past few years.”
