What is Pide Vida?
Pide Vida is an initiative via which youth arrive, who have been affected by violence, gangs, consumption of psychoactive substances, amongst other things. The members of the project visit schools to work in processes of prevention in the consumption of psychoactive substances, teenage pregnancies, sexual abuse and suicide to build life projects through art, theater, music and breakdance which allows students to create new stories.
How has RECON supported Pide Vida?

Dalai Lama Center of MIT, the second for the strengthening of the social business model, training overseen by Impact Hub, Athena and RECON.
Furthermore, it has been seen on the RECON platform and other media such as El Tiempo, amongst others.
