She explained that this initiative aims to develop social, psychological and work tools that allow inmates to reintegrate into society once they are released from prison, as well as reduce levels of violence at the individual, family and community levels, having two main components: sports plus psycho-emotional.
DraRendón spoke about how important it is to work with the most vulnerable parts of the community and she gave a very special thank you to the WBC for unwavering loyal support.

Boxing Clinics, Motivational Talks, Forgiveness and Reconciliation Workshops, Family Coexistences, Psychological Care, among other vital strategies.
