Our project (support center for street children) is a non-profit organization established in May 1992, which aim to promote the integral development of children/adolescents and their families who face or are in risk of facing street situations by integrating them into a comprehensive educational program that fosters critical awareness and an active disposition for social change.
The services that we provide to the children/adolescents and their families are:
-Personal support and school education
-School of mothers and fathers
-Exhibitions for programs and services
