Fundacion Junto Con Los Ninos (JUCONI)

“The Juconi Model of intervention with highly excluded children in violent homes”


Programme to be evaluated:

JUCONI’s model of intervention addresses violence in families as a key driver for children being on the streets and in other situations of social exclusion. The programme is based on a weekly visit to the family home. JUCONI’s theory of change posits a relationship between the attachment strategies parents use with their children and the violence in the home their children are subjected to.
