The programme developed the capacities of children, adolescents and women living in the provinces of Apurímac and Ayacucho to reach their full potential. Traumatized by violence and abject poverty, the programme provided a comprehensive approach beginning with improvements in maternal health and early childhood development, to the provision of good quality education and better living conditions without violence.
