Young people in gangs are at the highest risk of becoming victims and/or perpetrators of violence.

Hip-Hop is a culture that promotes respect, unity and peace.

“We reach out to young people through rap, graffiti, photography, sports and hip-hop events.

The coordinators of Ranchero Pandillero are young ex-gang members who have left violence behind to bring about change within themselves and their communities.

The program began in 2017 and has several lines of action to achieve its goal.

The team uses Hip Hop as a tool to intervene with young people and promote peace
