The main objective of the Association is to act against social and economic separation of groups of people in San Isidro el General, especially concentrating on children and youth that have been victims of abandonment, violence and inter-familiar abuse.
To accomplish this, the association works on several projects, such as preventative work with children and women in a socially vulnerable condition and various support projects for children and youth in peripheral neighborhoods. In the center of San Isidro, Vida Nueva runs a project for street people, and on a farm outside of San Isidro there is a rehabilitation program for drug addicted people.

The Association is also working on spreading and sharing information about the rights of children, youth and of women.
