Swiss television station, RSI brings a report from Spain where the economic crisis has forced 27% of Spanish children below the poverty line. Many schools have remained open over the summer holiday, to make sure the youngsters get at least one full meal a day.

Spanish TV station TVE says only 2 out of 10 under 30-year-olds in Spain have left the parental home. The economic situation and high youth unemployment have left this generation unable to find any kind of independence.

A final report from French TV station, France 3 describes the growing problem for children without families. It’s estimated there are up to 8000 children without visas, who get by however they can.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
