La Comunidad que Construimos started its social project in 2013 because a large population of children and adolescents who reside in Trujillo live in conditions of poverty which dramatically affect their personal development, access to and quality of education. Other detrimental long-term effects are:
- Low self-esteem and confidence;
- Low attendance in school;
- Increased chance of becoming involved in drugs and crime;
- Increased chance of developing mental disorders such as anxiety and depression.
