To contribute to the exercise of early childhood rights within children's family and social context.
1. The reestablishment and guarantee of rights starts on integral protection concept to impact early childhood who have lived social fragility, threat, breach or violation of rights. For the best interests of children, this process seeks to:
Their recognition as subjects of rights
Quality assurance and compliance with the exercise of rights
The immediate restoration of violated rights
In CRAN direct action on children to provide comprehensive protection is led by the temporary protection programs and kindergarten.
1.1 Temporary protection
The program provides temporary protection to children who have experienced abuse situations associated, an area of skilled care and a love and respect environment, while defining their social and legal situation, either through reintegration to their biological family or integration into an adoptive family. The program has two modes of operation:
1.2 Institutional Home
In this mode, children live at the Foundation, where they are cared by qualified caregivers who assume this responsibility.
1.3 Foster homes
In this mode, children live with foster families that receive in their household maximum four children.
Through kindergarten, CRAN provides comprehensive care service for children with families of high socio-economic fragility. The model seeks to articulate the family intervention to prevent conditions that can lead into situations of violations of children rights.
In addition, children receive 70% of daily nutrition and their families have access to advocacy and preventative health. The pedagogical model hosted by CRAN is based on constructivism, therefore it works by corners and classroom projects with the following objectives:
-Development of emotional, social and cognitive skills in children
-Strengthened families and community links
-Promotion of personal and professional growth 2. Prevention Activity in the generation of adults promotes awareness of the responsibility of all to ensure childhood rights. CRAN proposed the ability to create healthy ties as the basis to assume and develop responsibility. Therefore individual, family and community abilities to be a respectful and loving environment preserving childhood rights. This process is led by the creation of programs of adoptive family and protection home.
Prevention strategy involves three levels of intervention:
This level includes competencies development, which will be consolidated through life. Therefore, personal level defines the project direction.
The family scope is the core of the strategy, as the space of the adult belonging in their different roles.
This level represents the sustainability of the strategy. The action in the social field makes possible the responsibility exercise in the family, society and the State, guaranteeing childhood rights.
The prevention strategy is aimed at adults as members of a family and community, who should strengthen their skills as early childhood caregivers.
We propose the following prevention scenarios:
Community attended in programs to restore and guarantee CRAN rights
Communities where CRAN operates
Companies and productive sector
This thematic line suggests the adult strengthening powers from the resilience, self-esteem and his capacity of recognition of his self and others as subjects of law.
Through this line we study the risk and protective factors, based on the individual recognition and acceptance of the role in the family.
This area addresses the construction of a healthy environment, based on caregiver's knowledge on the use of family support networks, social and public to attend children and families needs.
