The CINDE Foundation, with the collaboration of Fundación MAPFRE, carries out this project for the educational and nutritional care of 375 children and adolescents from 2 to 15 years of age.
The project benefits the sons and daughters of poor women who engage in street peddling in the districts of Soyapango and Mejicanos in the country’s capital, San Salvador.
Through the two Infant Development Centers (CINDE), the Foundation cares for the children from 2 to 6 years of age, and offers help with studies to the students from 7 to 15 years old.
In addition to educational support, the children receive nutritional care. For the young children in day care this means breakfast, lunch and a snack and a glass of milk; and in the case of the older children, lunch and refreshment.
Concurrently, bimonthly awareness training is carried out with the parents through training workshops focusing on themes which can help them with the education of their children.
The CINDE Foundation is a non-profit organization which has been working in El Salvador for 28 years, supporting children and young people from excluded social sectors, through quality comprehensive educational programs and balanced nutritional care.
