Despite economic growth, unemployment and poverty are still high in Peru. Insufficient education makes it difficult for children and youths to improve their prospects. Many children have no choice but to be involved in crime, violence and drug trafficking activities. We help young people in conflict with the law to give up crime and to be rehabilitated. We also provide training to legal professionals so they apply methods that are more efficient than prison.
