Summary

Mensajeros de la Paz has a temporary home - located in Buenos Aires - for vulnerable girls from ages 6 to 12, who have been legally removed from their homes and families by social services in order to protect their rights. As a consequence of pandemic, the rate of poverty in Argentina will increase to at least 50%, that is why we need to reinforce this project in the order to our target population is likely to grow in the next months.

Challenge

Girls who live at the home have grown up in precarious, insecure environments. They often arrive without any identity papers and after suffering severe physical and psychological damage. Lacking their rights as children to identity and security, these girls need a home like Pewmafemalen during this transitory period in their lives.

Solution

At Pewmafemalen, girls receive psychological and medical assistance in an effort to help them recover emotionally and physically from prior abuses. Each individual is embraced, understood and supported by a team of professionals. Our programs and services work to develop their unique personalities and instill a sense of security and self-reliance. These individually developed programs include a thorough diagnosis of each girl's case with professional strategies to find solutions.

Long-Term Impact

Coming to Pewmafemalen is a life-changing experience for these girls as they seek recovery. Our programs offer the support and tools necessary to recover and start a new life free of previous abuses. The primary goal of Pewmafemalen is to ensure the girls are placed in a secure family so that the previous issues do not reoccur. In 2013, Mensajeros de la Paz successfully placed 98% of the girls from Pewmafemalen with a new family.
