Province "Nuestra Señora de las Virtudes" Colombia

Target

Continue the psychosocial support programme for 50 young adolescents and their families in the Divino Niño neighbourhood in the municipality of Barbacoas, strengthening possibilities for human development and active participation in their environment.

Description

The surrounding neighbourhoods of the municipality of Barbacoas lack the presence of the state, making possible serious social problems that have a direct impact on the lives of young people: high levels of street life, consumption of psychoactive substances, sexual violence, child labour, common delinquency, armed conflict, and inadequate management of situations such as disability and teenage pregnancy.

The project aims to develop a comprehensive accompaniment plan for young people and their families, which includes cognitive, ethical, affective, moral, social, spiritual, recreational, artistic and cultural aspects.

BENEFICIARIES
The beneficiaries of this project are 50 young adolescents and their families who are vulnerable due to the reality of poverty and violation of rights.

Achievements

The 50 beneficiaries and their families participated in psychological intervention, follow-up, training workshops, therapeutic days of psychosocial support and comprehensive activities, and acquired tools that enable them to overcome conflict situations.
Skills and processes of adaptation to new realities have been developed, as well as their consolidation for the community projection of the young-adolescent and his or her family.
Families are actively engaged in ensuring the practice of meaningful learning.
Articulation at inter- and institutional level with other entities.
