Support a home for abused and neglected girls



Pewmafemalen, located in Buenos Aires, is a residential home of the NGO Mensajeros de la Paz. It provides a temporary place for vulnerable girls who cannot live with their families because their rights as children have been infringed upon in multiple ways such as domestic violence, sexul abuse, forced labor and unsafe living conditions. We welcome girls between the ages of 6 and 12 years old who are embraced, understood and supported by a team of professionals.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mensajeros de la Paz welcomes girls into Pewmafemalen whose rights have been infringed upon and have been legally removed from their homes and families by social services. These girls have grown up in precarious, insecure environments, often arrive without any identity papers and have suffered severe physical and psychological damage. Therefore, Pewmafemalens primary goal is to achieve a healthy familial reinsertion for every girl who goes through our program.

How will this project solve this problem?

At Pewmafemalen, girls receive psychological and medical assistance in an effort to help them recover emotionally and physically from prior abuses. Our programs and services work to develop their unique personalities and instill in them a sense of security and self-reliance. These programs are individually developed and include a complete and thorough diagnosis of each girl's case and the professional strategies necessary to find solutions to each problem.

Potential Long Term Impact

Coming to Pewmafemalen is a life-changing experience for these girls as they seek recovery from severe psychological and physical condition's. Our programs will provide them with the support and tools necessary to start a new life, one free of previous abuses. Therefore, Pewmafemalen works hard to ensure the girls are placed in a secure family after their time at the home so that these problems do not reoccur. In 2013, the rate of successful family reinsertion was 98%.
