Synopsis of our programs

ASCRIGERE – Love in the Street Ministry was created as missionary work to care for children and adolescents living in the streets.

The range of programs from ASCRIGERE – Love in the Street Ministry arises from the specific needs that have been shown to us along the way.

Synopsis

Populations that have been covered include those which are already in social pathological situations, such as people who are homeless or in juvenile detention centers.

Preventative and formative programs have also been developed, specialized according to age group, in areas where higher incidences of social problems have been detected.

The Shelter – Household of Restoration Program was developed for every child or teenager who requires a change in lifestyle.

Likewise, the Knowledge of Stewardship Program could be of interest if a community, organization or church (national or international) would like to develop programs for the social good.

As an organization, we receive no government contribution. Each program is supported by our faith in God through donations, volunteer work and the development of sustainable projects.

Research, development, optimization and process improvement have been encouraged in each of the programs developed.

Professionals from different disciplines and the ministerial team in general add their knowledge and experience of the highest caliber to the programs.

However, divine intervention, with His grace, love and power has made possible the changes we see in the lives of the people who receive the opportunities provided to them. Thus, ASCRIGERE – Love in the Streets Ministries rises as a pillar from the ground of the truth revealed by Jesus Christ on Earth.

 Furthermore, we have provided a timeline of our current programs:
