    Rehabilitation projects for youth and adults should be supported unconditionally, social Organanizaciones and State Institutions are in the moral obligation to provide any support for projects created for this purpose and have positive impact for the good of these vulnerable groups.

    • Cecilia Vélez

      It is a priority and a duty to ensure the welfare of others, the best thing that young people get involved in sustainable and rehabilitation proyects.
      The social organizations, government and International aid agencies should work together to lower rates of poverty, domestic violence, crime, drugs
      Proyects as presentd should be supported and put into practice sustaining them with th proposed resources.
