Whowe are?

  • How? Linking 1.500.000 families with the offer of the State.

  • We understand poverty not just as a matter of income, but as multidimentional poverty including health, education, generation of income and education for work, family relations, habitability, nutrition, access to justice, amongst others.

  • We understand development as a human rights concern. In a country that had been facing decades of internal armed conflict, extreme poverty and the effects of conflict in both rural and urban areas becomes a challenge in terms of design policies between transitional justice and current social policy.
