Challenge

The area of the proposed intervention for this project is the San Jose Villanueva municipality in the Department of La Libertad, that has been one of the municipalities which in recent years has been seriously hit by violence, as well as the high rates of poverty.

Solution

The project will start workshops of vocational training in screen-printing to a group of 20 youth community members, between the ages of 15 and 24 in order to promote holistic personal, mental, and emotional development, while distancing them from unproductive and dangerous activities. This program focuses its efforts on giving young people the opportunity to express themselves while learning to relate

Long-Term Impact

Children and youth that participate in the program will learn skill in graphic art but to create the opportunities needed to generate a change in their community. Through art they will experience the importance of culture in the society and will acquire the motivation and knowledge needed to develop entrepreneurial ventures that will benefit their communities and bring credibility back to their neighborhoods.
