In Denmark, 12% of the population is at risk of poverty with an ‘at risk of poverty’ income threshold of 1208 Euros per month. Yildirim, 22 years old, was involved in criminal activities in the past that resulted in a prison sentence. With the help of Café Exit, an organization that receives support from the European Union and which helps ex-inmates to get their life back on track by organising education, jobs and place to stay, Yildirim has started a new life. He will soon begin at cooking school.
