Context of the community in which he works

The Centro Educativo Nueva Vida is located in the "Fondos del Borro", on the border of Barrio Borro with the Casavalle housing unit. This is an area where precarious settlements predominate, with houses lacking sanitation, with irregular supply on electricity and running water. Some houses are illegally supplied with electricity, through precarious connections that greatly increase the risk of electrical accidents or fire.


The houses are built with scrap materials, sheet metal, cardboard, wire, wood planks, etc., and therefore do not offer good protection from adverse weather. Health and hygiene conditions are precarious, making it difficult for people to develop physically, psychologically and socially.


The Nueva Vida social center works with children and adolescents between the ages of 0 and 18 and with young mothers in the sector.
