October 18, 2018 is the day that more than 15,000 young people in Flanders and Brussels don’t go to school. Instead they choose to go and work for one day. The wages that they earn on that day, 50 euros, go to projects of committed young people worldwide.
One of those projects is situated in Guayaquil, the second largest city in Ecuador. Plan International has set up a project to work on gender equality in one of the toughest neighbourhoods of the city, “Nueva Prosperina”.
In this interactive documentary you can explore the reality, dreams and goals of some of the youngsters involved in the project.
