Our WAWAS project (which means children in the native language Quecha) attempts above all to reduce the rates of domestic violence that mainly affect children as direct victims or witnesses of violence. For us, the fact of suffering or witnessing violence from early childhood is one of the causes for the rest of society's ills, such as crime, youth gangs, femicides, corruption, early pregnancies and even poverty. For this reason, the main objective is that the home and family become the safest places for all its members and from there a change of mentality is generated in favor of a culture of non-violence and peaceful coexistence with other actors. of the society.
The WAWAS project implements a Prevention, Protection, Rehabilitation and training program that allows all school-age children and adolescents, parents, teachers, principals and local leaders, to denature violence, identify it, interrupt it and prevent it. , promoting the practice of values such as respect, tolerance, solidarity and recognition.
