Sylvain Pauwels, Moorea, French Polynesia, Winning Humanitarians: Sylvain is founder and président of a youth nonprofit association, Arii Heiva Rau, in one of the most popular districts on the island of Moorea. Sylvain, backed up by a group of activity leaders, works for children & youth in different projects: sports, health, fight against drugs and alcohol, road safety, after-school support and many others. Every year they organize contests and shows gathering from all youth associations of the island. During summer vacations, youth and summer camps are proposed to the very poor children and families. In this authentic way he positively contributes to the development of Polynesian childhood and youth. Sylvain is also trying to develop a tutoring centre focused on manual activities and jobs. His idea is to fetch those teenagers who left school very young, giving them a “second chance” to succeed in life. By Virginia De La Rosa
