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.
