Yaneth y Fernando Maclanil – Jovenes Sin Pandillas

Date grant awarded: June 6, 2019

Jovenes Sin Pandillas is a project that takes place in the municipality of Villarica, Colombia. With the support of a social psychologist and a group of professionals, we seek to minimize the impact that gang life has on young people through awareness and resilience workshops that will result in restorative practices. Given the context of our workshops, creating a safe space for our participants if of utmost importance. Currently we use a space called Palenque, which is deteriorating. Funds from The Pollination Project will allow us to repair the roof and purchase necessary equipment to keep the workshops happening.
