In Ecuador, especially in poor areas, many children do not have access to basic health care. We aim to prevent early pregnancy and improve the quality of care for pregnant girls. Children grow up in an environment, where violence is a major problem. In this context, we help young people in conflict with the law rehabilitate and to reintegrate into society. We also protect children from exploitation and risky migration.
What we do
Access to justice
Mother and child health
Restorative Juvenile Justice in Latin America
We work for change in judicial systems to keep children out of prison. With professional support, we help them earn a fresh start in their communities.
