First report

During the first semester of 2019, 120 babies entered Juanfe's Infant Development Center: 45 of them are 3 to 8 months of age, 45 are 8 to 12 months of age, and 30 are 12 to 24 months of age. 

All of them participated in the positive upbringing pedagogical method, based on mutual respect, raising with love, and non-violence. The babies had sleep and resting routines, as well as playing activities for stimulation and activities for hygiene and feeding. 

70% started complementary feeding and 80% were assessed in speech pathology and physiotherapy to detect potential alterations in their development process. 

Their mothers, who are teenage mothers served by Juanfe's 360° Empowerment Program, participated in workshops related to acute respiratory infection, guidelines to correct tantrums, positive upbringing, and the elaboration of toys with recycled materials.

The babies had music-therapy aimed at stimulating their logical thinking, concentration, and language.

Finally, 100% advanced their integral development.

First report

During the second quarter of 2019, Juanfe's Employment and Entrepreneurship Office (EEO) reached several goals. The EEO is the third and last phase of a two-year model that serves adolescent mothers and their children and is focused on the economic inclusion of these young mothers. This quarter, the EEO:

- Identified 324 job opportunities, managed 71 jobs, and established 62 corporate contacts.

- Contributed to the attainment of formal jobs through 66 psycho-technical tests, the drafting of 72 resumes, and the follow-up on 30 beneficiaries that are currently employed.

- Strengthened the skills of 359 young mothers through 6 courses and 6 workshops for professional enhancement. 

In addition:

- 16 teenage mothers received training in entrepreneurship and will soon launch their own stores. 1 young woman received a sewing machine and a clothing-filleting machine to start her dressmaking business.

- Private sector enterprises met the Juanfe Foundation and became familiar with responsible employment policies thanks to three activities organized by the EEO: the Juanfe Tour, the Job Fair, and the Business Breakfast. Several beneficiaries started their internships as a result of the contacts established during these events.
