About

This project is the only place in Granada where the street kids get some attention and the chance to meet their needs. A big part of the attention given to the children refers to their body hygiene and healthiness: They have to wash themselves to join the project. The kids also have to respect the common social norms and the educators and try to assist in the activities and classes. Most of the kids are drug addicts, especially of adhesive. Because the center was founded by the Catholic Church, the formation of catholic values is a big topic there. Furthermore, the kids receive psychological attention if needed and food three times a day. The attendance in the center is voluntarily. All the services that are offered they get for free if they like to join and come to the center.
