The JUCONI Foundation (Junto con los Niños/Together with the Children) was established in 1995 in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Our mission is to assist street involved children and those at high risk, to find lasting solutions that ensure their healthy development and allow them to exercise their rights in accordance with the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child. Our methodology, which is available to other NGOs working with vulnerable children, has been used in Afghanistan, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and South Africa and internationally recognised by UNESCO, the Consortium for Street Children and the World Bank.
1. To provide personalized educational and therapeutic support to street involved children and their families to get children off the street and back into school
2. To build families and communities which value and respect children´s rights
3. To share our skills and expertise with other NGOs and service providers so they can work more effectively with street involved and other socially excluded children
