Short description:
The Asociacion Muchachos de la Calle began its work in 1987 with children living on the streets of Venezuela. Its objective is to decrease the number of children who work and live in the streets. The NGO also strives to develop strategies to help the street children of Venezuela find positive alternatives to street life. With help from UNESCO and other sources, the NGO was able to obtain facilities and equipment to carry out its objectives. Presently, it has two houses where street children can take refuge, learn a trade and receive medical attention.
