Glenda Michelle García is 28 years old, she is a single mother and has to go out to work to earn a daily living; For this reason, this place is a great support for her, where her nine-year-old daughter and her five-year-old daughter receive constant attention and care. “Grateful to the Foundation, because sometimes I have to go to work and I have no one to leave the children with and they come and stay here.”
Since the pandemic began, the entity has been constantly providing emotional and educational support to girls and boys in the sector; In this way, their parents also benefit, since they can go to work with more peace of mind, knowing that their children are in good hands.
“We realized that the children had a lot of difficulty with their learning; what we did was communicate with many moms, families and friends and we told them about the idea we had of providing them with educational and emotional support,” said Maryori Segura, temporary manager of the Foundation.
