To learn about, understand and help young people in critical gang and drug addiction situations, it is necessary to reach them in their own environment.
That’s where the Nacidos Para Triunfar Program reaches the youth, implementing sports and healthy social events with them, participating in their dreams and needs through formal and informal talks.
During these gatherings, young people begin to get involved in the program and work to change the reality of their environments. Some examples of these changes are: collaborating on painting graffiti murals with positive messages, the restoration of green areas by cutting grass, picking up trash, rocks and debris. These rehabilitations also create spaces for sports events and The Leadership Schools.
Through these activities, rival gang members begin to experience the possibility of peaceful coexistence and mutual cooperation. This opens the door for a Peace Treaty. Moreover, as the rival gangs are no longer participating in street fights, the communities become safer.
