This project assists ”street children” at-risk and impoverished youth living in very difficult conditions. In the last 17 years we have successfully reintegrated 700 children into society. We have conducted 48 courses. We currently serve youth with 4 main program courses: Hostelry; With Future & Without Fear (gardening); Be an Academic Citizen (university preparatory course); Be a Digital Citizen (computer) and Too Much (jewelry), currently serving 122 youth directly and 366 indirectly.


The methodology is aimed to develop skills in different areas included in a general program called Education & Work.
