(projects, operation manuals, reports) + synthesis


The boys and the girls do not stay long time in the foster homes run by the institutions; they do not stand the adults rules, not to decide about their own lives, to be separated from their fellows and their own children.

It has been necessary to start from their reality that is the street and its values – friendship and sharing out - they can’t survive without in a hostile world.

The project wants to strengthen these values and develop them on the way of self-management, self-determination, liberating friendship. Nothing is given as present because alms are humiliating and do not help to be free. Everything is to be gained trough work, study and personal and community-minded efforts.
