Child Care

Description

Celina Flores, 21, and her 2-year-old daughter, Dayra, attend the opening of the new World Vision supported New Child Development Center in Colomi, Bolivia.

Until World Vision started the center, parents had no choice but to leave ther children home alone when they went out to work. At the center children under age 5 now have a place to learn and be safe while parents are working.

The center is operated in partnership with the community, which provided the building and pays teacher salaries. World Vision, through sponsorship, provided set-up guidance, classroom materials, and health training to make nutritious food.

Parents are also able to participate in workshops where they can learn parenting skills, child health and nutrition, and importance of treating children as a gift from God.

"The situation of the children in this village is sad because their moms are working in the fields. That's when the children suffer," says Celina Flores.

"This is a big help -- a place where they can bring their children. And it's good to help children develop their minds. And it's a big help to moms, too."
