The “Street work” area was the first project to be set up when we started our work. It allows us to approach peripheral zones of Trujillo formed by human settlements from which the children and teenagers we work with come from.
Thanks to the active contact thus maintained, we are able to set up activities of: prevention, identification and raising awareness of children in high social risk in order to improve their living conditions.
Between 2014 and 2015, over 800 children were reached by the Street Work project.
Street work is also a way to establish trusting relationships with the leaders of the communities, thus creating bonds allowing us to bring support as planned.
Table of our main local partners
Street work divides into four areas:
Raising awareness on educational and social topics for the children of the communities.
Organised for adults, this area addresses topics such as violence within families, family planning, education and health, with the support of women working in community kitchens.
Organised for children from the poorest Trujillo areas, these activities include games, sports championships and gymkhana.
These activities include clothes, food, school supplies and toys donations coordinated by campaigns organised by the Street Work Team.
