Thomas, formerly homeless and 52 years old, lives in Malmö, Sweden. In the past, he spent his nights in a shelter or shared a place with someone else. In Sweden, 12% of the population is at risk of poverty and the ‘at risk of poverty’ income threshold is 1029 Euros per month. Thanks to ABF Malmö, an education centre for those who lack the resources to access mainstream education, Thomas found new stability and self-esteem.
