114 child development centers are operational since yesterday at the Ecuadorian capital, 13 of these spaces were part of the municipal program called “guaguacentros,” designed to meet the needs of children with disabilities.
The City Hall has fulfilled 57% of its children’s program. The goal of Mayor Mauricio Rodas and his wife Maria Fernanda Pacheco, president of the San José Municipal Patronage, is to establish 200 of these centers in the capital until 2019. One of the main objectives of the couple is to combat malnutrition affecting small members of low-income families. (I)
