The Community Center serves 60 kids of 0-12 years of age and 40 families. Services include educational development, nutritional guidance and health support to children, including vaccinations. Grade school children have access to a technology center, provided by Fundación Tigo, and educational support while parents are enrolled in programs geared towards violence prevention and self-esteem development.
Aldeas Infantiles SOS is the largest international organization for direct care of children, present in 135 countries. They provide assistance to children without adequate parental care by giving them alternative families and a nurturing environment. They also ensure siblings of at-risk families stay together in these foster homes. The goal of the program is to strengthen families and keep them together while focusing on youth development.
