Fight against outer inequality is a key component of Oxfam work in Peru and the world. In this sense, it is key to question the phenomenon regarding the high concentration of wealth and opportunities accumulated in the hands of a few at the expense of many. The purpose of this project is to generate evidence of the situation of young people in a country marked by inequality, exposing the severity of the barriers they face. This situation has not been adequately addressed by public policies, which have often deepened the spoilage of the socioeconomic conditions of young people, including a decent job and quality free education.
