The city of Mossoro is on the 52th position in the ranking of the cities that kills the most young Black men and women at the national level, according to 2015 Violence Map. Among the Federal States, it holds the first position. The group works in the outskirts of Mossoro, a region characterized by precarious educational structure, with ten thousand inhabitants and no public high schools. There are no spaces for the Youth to live and communicate their reality. Communities face serious problems concerning health care and there is limited access to culture, high rates of unemployment and scarce means to earn an income, difficult access to urban mobility and easy access to crime through drug trafficking, assaults and other unlawful acts.
