Meet Villa Vida
The Villa Vida Center for Adolescent Mothers is committed to the recovery and comprehensive development of child mothers and victims of sexual assault, by strengthening their life skills and technical-productive capacities to carry out their life plan.
Also works in Educational Institutions of Villa Maria del Triunfo, under a prevention approach, so that children, adolescents and their families improve their knowledge and practices, which reduce sexual and domestic violence towards them.
Adolescent mothers and their children receive comprehensive care in the foster care program at the Adolescent Mothers Center, where they strengthen their life skills and positive parenting.
They also learn to set goals in life, as a result of their participation in psychotherapeutic containment and support sessions, socio-educational sessions.
At the same time, during the stay of the teen mother and her children in the program, they have access to basic health services, nutrition, recreation, civil documents, stimulation, clothing, family care sessions for reintegration and training as productive technicians for their economic self-support.
Through this Prevention Program, children and adolescents and their families from state educational institutions in the Villa María del Triunfo district, improve their knowledge and practices to reduce sexual and domestic violence against them. In turn, teachers are trained in the use of methodologies for the prevention of sexual and domestic violence.
In addition, adolescent leaders and parents are also trained to be key actors in violence prevention at school and in their community.
The Villa Vida Adolescent Mothers Center prevention program also promotes the organization of a system of educational counselors, made up of teachers, student leaders, and parents to provide counseling in schools.
