INVISIBLE NETWORKS, with the aim that more and more what is added to existing networks or create their own. Each one, in its square meter.

A neighbor, a friend, a teacher, a sponsor or a guardian can change the lives of young people from vulnerable contexts. Because a poor boy does not have a network or references that serve as a guide. When this human plot accompanies them, these children can dream, study, get a formal job or improve their house.

Therefore, they are the ones who are going to tell how to be born in poverty, have to work as children, what gaps they faced in issues such as health, education and housing, and how they overcame situations of bullying and discrimination.

For the project to be self-sustaining, the contribution of partner companies such as Banco Hipotecario, Grupo Román and
