Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to see how Fundación Senda De Libertad works in a preventive manner with youths who have social difficulties in Dario, Nicaragua. This study has utilised qualitative method, in order to gain adequate and sufficient information. The analysis of data has been gathered through an ethnographic perspective were observations and qualitative interviews have been used. This study shows how youths are affected with different social problems because of the number of risk factors that surround their environment. The organisation’s preventive works is done by going out and teach in schools, society and churches about self-esteem, sex and relationships, drug abuse and so forth. Conclusions show that many youths are unable to affect their own future and will therefore spend their time committing criminal actions, doing drugs and so forth. Fundación Senda De Libertad therefore works to support in order for them to become active participants in society. This will also help them make changes in the future of the general society.
