One month of daycare for an impoverished child in Columbia
Teenage mothers in Colombia often drop out of school when they become pregnant. Once their child is born, childcare needs can prevent them from additional schooling and subsequent employment, continuing a cycle of poverty that will have negative impacts for generations.
The Juanfe Infant Development Center (CIDI) provides a safe, interactive, developmentally appropriate childcare space for children while their mothers pursue vocational training. Your gift provides one month of day care for a child, ensuring they receive appropriate care and attention while their mother receives the training she needs to provide for the family in the future.
