COBIJO is a shelter, it is comfortable, practical, waterproof, resistant, transportable, easy to clean. I do not intend to solve the problem of people living on the streets, my wish is that these people sleep on mattresses, under a roof and are in a better situation, but the process is slow and meanwhile there they are, forgotten. I want us to realize that when we see a shelter there is a person sleeping there. Begin to look where we never look.
