Activities

  • PREVENTION OF SAFE MIGRATION Accompanying people in a migratory situation, especially in border cities.
  • OASES OF GROWTH AND RECREATION. We see the need to start a new way of working towards children, which will promote more family participation in the development of girls and contribute from open spaces to the development of skills and capacities of girls and the family.
  • EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN. Promoting the empowerment of women will have a multiplier effect that will transform their environment and generate the repositioning of their rights and respect for them within the social sphere.

The province is currently in the process of revising its works and designing new models of intervention, in accordance with the three areas of attention of the PEM.
