In the autonomous city of Melilla, there are dozens of young people living in the streets. Their stay in the city is usually arduous due to the lack of support received from the city’s institutions, which prevents them from integrating in it and, consequently, pushes them into a situation of rejection and social isolation. Given this, the conditions of the assistance-based system in the transit centers managed by the city push many people to live on the streets.

Our main activity in the city focuses on this collective. We try to cover, to the best of our abilities, the basic needs they can have, considering the situation in which they find themselves in. However, far from perpetuating this situation, we look to transform this reality. In order to do this, we build continuous support and trust ties that allow us to get to know their reality.

Our priority is to make the constant violation of the human rights in this border visible, as well as to report publicly the abandonment and lack of institutional commitment in the face of this situation.

Without the cooperation between organizations that already exist in the field and individuals who work accompanying those in transit, it would not be possible to carry out our mission in the field.
