The first step in the Los Cachorros program is directed at preventing children to end up living on the streets. Los Cachorros has set up activities in the light of prevention and education. We choose for preventive activities among children that already are in the network of Los Cachorros because these children already have a connection with our organization. Furthermore, this approach ensures a selection within a large group of children that run the risk of ending up on the streets. Los Cachorros collaborates with other organizations in the disadvantaged neighborhoods in Ayachucho, that are active in prevention as well.
