Areas of intervention

The knowledge of fundamental rights begins with education. School, training and labour centers, civil society organizations contribute to strengthen in the population the knowledge on the subject of duties, rights, and access to their own rights.
Ideaborn Foundation works to strengthen this capacity by involving teachers, trainers and other education actors in different regions of the world.

Our work is aimed toward three fundamental challenges:

Dissemination and support of the training process for knowledge and respect of human rights

Violence and crime prevention

Our initiative:

FONDO RECUERDA

With the firm conviction that the prevention of child and juvenile crime is a fundamental factor in social development, democracy and obtaining and consolidating peace, the foundation is active in matters of violence prevention and child and youth crime. The foundation’s strategies for preventing violence focus on three levels of prevention, each corresponding to an action scenario. As a primary prevention, work is done directly with children and teenagers in schools and within the community. These activities take place both in-school and outside school hours. The secondary prevention strategy focuses on establishing bridges between the police and other members of the public / groups affected by juvenile delinquency. Finally, a third level of prevention aims to develop programs in detention centres, in order to prevent repeat offending. The strategy as a whole aims to strengthen existing initiatives in the places where it operates.

In situations of conflict or post-conflict, the Foundation develops initiatives through support for South-South cooperation projects. Ideaborn Foundation also works for the population to have fair access to justice, truth and reparation and to develop guarantees of non repetition of the atrocities. The ideaborn Foundation has the objective to offer alternative conflict resolution models for communities, where the existing conflict resolution mechanisms can be strengthened. The Ideaborn Foundation works to offer a methodology for monitoring the activities implemented to improve them and it aims to replicate the best practices in other parts of the world.
