“Pequeños Ciudadanos Globlales” is a project that seeks learning based on values for children that are living in social risk situations, with the purpose of diminishing the effects of these crisis: the exclusion and social maladjustment by family causes. The main goal of this project is to generate self-consciousness on the importance of values in the family and the daily basis. Though these values are promoted from the family’s core, this project it’s meant to solve these lacks that these children may have, not only proving how important these values and education are, but also that this represents a right for them as children, that must be guaranteed by their parents or representatives. This is also a millennium goal of the eight top list goals. It is in the second place on that list to be more accurate.
