JUCONI works with highly excluded children who drop out of or are missed by existing state and voluntary service provisions. Every time such children are failed by another organisation, they become more detached and less trusting that their lives can be improved.
However, for some children, the creation of a safe environment in their familial home is not possible and, in those cases, children are housed and nurtured in JUCONI House.
Each year, JUCONI carries out a long-term evaluation of those who graduated from the Programmes 5 and 10 years earlier.
The success of the JUCONI model resides in its three sub-programmes which help children, young people and families in street situations including:
- those who live and work in the street
- those who work in the street but have a home to live in and
- families that work in open markets whose children are at high risk of becoming totally involved in street life because they are left in contact with it while their parents attend market stalls
