The social purpose of Dynamo International is development cooperation especially in the fields related to children and youth in street situation, education and social street work.
The challenge is that all around the world, every person, child and adult in street situation, can get aid, protection, social and educational support.
Dynamo International's action is concretized through 2 main strands:
INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF STREET WORKERS - www.socialstreetwork.org
Dynamo International coordinates “Dynamo International - Street Workers Network “an international network of social workers active in the field with various people in street situations (children, youth people and adults). The Network currently consists of 50 national platforms of street workers from Southern and Northern countries. Each platform brings together several local associations and street workers individually.
Through the involvement of many persons who are in contact with people and children living and/or working in the street, the aim of the Network is to increase the efficiency and the quality of the practices by means of training, exchanges and implementation of educational tools.
The other objective is to generate an international mobilization to build lasting and structural answers toward problems (poverty, exploitation, etc.) that people in the street face around the world. This project is a real solidarity network whereby people working on the ground can express themselves, question the political powers and others instances on the fight against inequalities, enhanced by a clear globalization.
Inside the Network, Dynamo International also directly supports 3 southern members’ projects concerning children and youth in street situations.
INTERNATIONAL MOBILITY PROJECT - www.dynamob.org
The second strand of Dynamo International activities is to help, in Belgium, young people between 13 and 25 years old in developing international projects. The aim is to encourage access for young people to European and International mobility programs, through a specific individual or collective assistance to emancipation and empowerment ends.
Dynamo International organizes also awareness and dissemination activities to professionals of youth sector and their target public about the opportunities offered by these programs. Awareness also concerns the public opinion, policy-makers and media about the issues of non-formal education programs with a view to a participatory citizenship
