After two years of project, where:
1. We pilot and evaluate the inclusion of robotics with colleagues and children.
2. We create a curriculum in which children are protagonists of their learning through creativity.
3. We trained 20 educators.
4. We designed a virtual course for the new colleagues to train in the future and make it sustainable.
5. We equipped four children's centers with Lego Duplo ESM equipment and three of them with WeDo equipment and tablets.

This month the classrooms include robotics as a learning tool within their weekly routine, marking a milestone in our process of innovation and improvement of STEAM and Gender Equality Approaches.

Family Support in Pandemia 2020

Employability Strategy
Employability Strategy

As a result of the economic crisis generated by COVID-19, 415 families in our Child Development Centers were affected at the employment level, so their income decreases and for almost all year they couldn't cover their basic needs (housing, food, emotional well-being). For this reason, Fundación DEHVI created the Pursuing Opportunities employability campaign, providing strategies to re-enfoce life skills, CV preparation, tips for job interviews, among others,  with the families. In addition, we reached an alliance with the employment platform Mi Host, in which families included their CV and applied for job offers.

Our family support in 2020 was complemented with:


Nutrition and greeting: the monthly shipment of food and hygiene items, as well as a nutritional campaign with healthy low-budget recipes.

Education: pedagogical activities to be carried out as a family and virtual participation in educational projects for children who did not regularly attend children's centers.


Mental Health and Protection: campaigns for the prevention of domestic violence and accompaniment of our psychologists to promote mental health.

In 2021 families started working again and today our focus is in reducing the gaps in development that children could have during pandemic times. We will share our new strategies to achieve this goal in the next report.

Thanks to be part of our mission through your emotional and economic investmentment.

Food and Hygiene for families
Food and Hygiene for families

2020 has been a worldwide challenging year! That allowed us to learn and be creative in the way we approach to children and families.

Whit one goal in mind, child development cannot stop! we started the most exiting adventure to work hand by hand with families to guarantee that children to have development spaces in their house as well as the child centers that never close because we are declared essential service in order to allow families to work.

Nutrition first: 80% of families lost or significative reduce their income sinse the pandemic started. Therefore, we send food and hygiene products to this families, collaborating to continue having the nutrition they need for child physical development.

Education must continue: 30% of children continue assisting to the centers and having their education and food programs, including the learning of new distance and hygiene measures.
With the 70% of children that stay at home to prevent the infection, we are increasing communication with families, sending child development activities, participating in the project from home and soon, we will initiate a formal project of education from home.

Support families: we also extended our work with families, to help them to have an adequate environment for children at home. Actions like: mental health activities, protection campaigns, improve work skills for work, job positions alliances among others have been key in 2020 and made the difference for families to go trough the pandemic and all situations related to it.

 And finally, Christmas!!!! This year celebrations must be in their families, so we send presents and sweets to every child and food to families that need it!

We can say 2020 strengthened our bond with families and reduce the impact of the COVID-19 in their lives.
