Born in Portugal, Felipe is a young man living in Luxembourg where 13 % of the population is at risk of poverty. In that country, a person is considered as being at risk of poverty and social exclusion when their income is less than EUR 1,546 per month. Having had difficulties at school, Felipe found himself unemployed. With the help of the National Youth Service of Luxembourg, which is also funded by the European Union, he found a job and now works in a nursing home.
