“Getting out of the houses”
It is the strategy to go to the places where the children, and adolescents live, study and work. That is, in their neighborhoods, schools, the market and garbage dumps. The inter-disciplinary team of the organization goes to these places in order to promote cultural and recreational activities and facilitate spaces to reflect about the prevention of dangerous situations and the understanding of the rights.
Including and participative leaderships:
It is a strategic definition of a new leadership. A collective and shared leadership, where children and adolescents recognize their own qualities, capacities and skills as wells as those of the others. In this way, the leadership is legitimate and besides, everyone feels valued and part of it.
“Meter el gusanito” (“positive infection”)
It is a definition we give to the process of “positively infect” other persons with our philosophy and encourage them to get involved in the change processes. We “positively infect” adults to change the world. It means to change the attitude concerning the children and adolescents; that is, by listening to them, respecting them and taking them into account when taking decisions which affect them. And we “positively infect” children and adolescents to be the leading actors of their own changes and social transformation in order to build the world they want to live in.
