TOGETHER AGAINST VIOLENCE

Prevention

During the 25 years of work, we have seen how street life has been transformed for children and adolescents, which has led us to strengthen intervention strategies.

Therefore, we decided to take actions by carrying out prevention work together with parents, caregivers, teachers and other members of the community.

 In Pro Niños we work prevention from two axes:

• Comprehensive care for families with children at risk of living on the street, through the Family Assistance Program.

• Early detection of adolescents at risk of living on the street, through workshops for the development of life skills taught in public secondary schools, which, as an immediate impact, will prevent school dropout.

 

Through this program, we serve children and adolescents between the ages of 8 and 17 who are at risk of living on the street.

Fighting for a decent life

During the 26 years of work, we have seen how street life has transformed for children and adolescents, which has led us to strengthen intervention strategies.

 That is why we decided to take action measures in prevention work together with fathers, mothers, caregivers, teachers and other members of the community. In Pro Niños we work prevention from two axes:

 • Comprehensive care for families with children at risk of living on the street, through the Family Assistance Program. • The early detection of adolescents at risk of living on the streets, through workshops for the development of life skills taught in public high schools, as an immediate impact, will prevent dropping out of school.

 The objectives of this program are:

 • Encourage all family members to reflect, recognize and manage their emotions.

 • Develop positive parental skills in parents and other caregivers through parent workshops

 • Develop skills in girls, boys and adolescents that help them take care of inside and outside their family environment. Let's achieve better prevention mechanisms together to ensure that more young people have the necessary tools to have a decent life, executing their rights.

Juan*

"In Day Center, I have fun and learn a lot, I like being there."

 

Juan has been at the Pro Niños Foundation for approximately 1 year and for him, being in “Day Center” is something significant.

Juan managed to join the Foundation along with his older brother, where in the company of other kids they learn to develop their physical and emotional skills.

 

Some activities he enjoys doing are painting, creating puzzles, performing shadow figures with his hands and visiting the Vasconcelos library.

 

With an age of 10 years Juan is strongly interested in digital media and wants to become an influential person in the area.

He declares that he is delighted to belong in the “Day Center”, since the educators encourage him to carry out his daily activities and accompany him at all times.

Juan infinitely thanks all the people who take the due time to give a donation to the Pro Niños Foundation.

He is currently about to enter the school and together with the educators he will be able to carry out school tasks and activities in the Day Center.

"THANK YOU FOR GIVING US ALL THESE THINGS!"
