Casa Alianza received The World’s Children’s Honorary Award 2002 for its struggle for children’s rights in Central America.
Through their work, Casa Alianza has succeeded in convincing many street children to give up their dangerous lives on the streets and try to build a new, drug-free life at the Casa Alianza’s children’s homes.
The children’s homes are also open to children who are poor or abused. The goal is that the children should get an education, and be able to move back home and live with their parents again.
Casa Alianza was also awarded for its important work in building opinion against violence directed against children and young people.
