The Asociación Civil Mensajeros de la Paz, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE, is carrying out the “Hogares Malen” project through which it provides a home and care to boys and girls under the age of 12 who find themselves in situations of vulnerability in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The organization has been working on this project since 2010. 180 boys and girls are given support in the following areas:
- Reinsertion and continuity in the education system.
- Comprehensive health care.
- Training in the exercising of rights.
The association works with three care homes where children are given a place to live. Health care is organized together with local institutions. Workshops on social integration, training for employment and diverse recreational and educational activities are also held.
In addition, the Asociación Civil Mensajeros de la Paz liaises with the Childhood and Adolescence authorities to ensure that these initiatives affecting the living conditions of the beneficiaries become long-lasting.
The Mensajeros de la Paz organization has a long history of working with young people, both at the international level and nationally in Argentina, where it has been carrying out projects for the protection of children and adolescents at social risk for the last 16 years.
