Learning the skills that can lead to employment is certainly part of the educational process. However, REDEP recognizes that many children do not complete their basic education, and leave school without acquiring the skills needed to earn a living. Their reasons for leaving are usually not lack of ability to learn, but rather some combination of the social conditions described above.

Children and youths in this group as well as women require special efforts to help them because their lack of earning capacity and of knowledge of life skills keeps them in poverty. They then become the source of many of the problems that the rest of society must deal with. REDEP actively encourages this group in particular to work  towards becoming self-sufficient, and seeks ways to assist them toward that goal
