We are still working on childhood malnutrition and its effects, working with mothers throughout an education program and with children throughout early and integral stimulation in order to achieve harmonic growth.

During this period we are focusing in Early Stimulation program, a child owns a special vital force of impulses since his birth up to 6 years of age that allows him to carry on a full development of his potentialities conditioned by the environment where he grows.

We could observed that the children need to be stimulated as nourished. We already have more than many recovered kids, but this is a job we have to continue day by day. Thats why our challenge is to work with thw families. 

Helps as so we can continue working.

Thanks a lot

Mal Nutrition is a family problem, that needs community solutions. All around the world, malnutrition is generated by different circunstances.

As it is a family problem, we offer community answers, that are sustainables along the time

We were working with six Conin Centers last year and with eight this year, the Child Undernourishment Prevention and Human Promotion Center that are part of the “Red Conin” and follows its methodology to address the problem. Its aim is to take care of the attention, education and assistance of children between 0 to 5 years old with nutritional and social risk. We also work with pregnant women at risk of giving low birth weight children.

During this period, we could observe positive changes in the children´s physical and mental development and in nutritional habits. Also we could identify changes in families under program.

We are happy because we are working during 2015 with more than 11000 children and their family

Thanks a lot for your help!

We could do a lot but we still need your help!

Brain development needs special materials to run properly: glucose, vitamins, minerals and other essential chemicals. If this complete menu is not delivered on time, brain and the central nervous system are exposed to high danger. Local community remains fully committed to this problem and we continue working with Conin Pilar, the Child Undernourishment Prevention and Human Promotion Center that is part of the “Red Conin” and follows its methodology to address the problem. Its aim is to take care of the attention, education and assistance of children between 0 to 5 years old with nutritional and social risk. We also work with pregnant women at risk of giving low birth weight children.

We have done several activities: family interviews in order to address their needs; workshops on integral stimulation including mothers, their babies and children between 2 to 5; health workshops; yoga workshops; gym lessons and more. This could help us give attention to more than 90 children and many families in nutrition, pediatrics, stimulation, psychology, etc.

Thanks a lot for your help! Now 30 children can have a better life!!!!
