Nuevo Renacer Development Program
This Development Program aims to improve the well-being of children, especially the most vulnerable, using an approach that is long term (15-20 years), holistic, focused on children, and seeks to enable their families, local communities and partners to address the underlying causes of poverty. These root causes are not just lack of access to the basic necessities of life like water, food or health care, but also include inequities like gender or ethnic discrimination, or abusive practices like exploitation or domestic violence that affect a child’s well-being.
464 young people were equipped with skills such as piñata-making, jewelry-making, and carpentry, increasing their economic opportunities. 102 people started home gardens or community gardens with our help, increasing the availability of nutritious food for their families. Through community health and nutrition clubs, 49 mothers were trained as mentors, equipping them to educate more than 500 other parents on child health and nutrition. 501 malnourished children returned to a healthy weight through World Vision-supported health and nutrition clubs. Together with teachers, we established 30 child development centers, which aim to strengthen children’s social and emotional skills, as well as fine and gross motor skills; 647 children attended the centers. We partnered with the local government to support and follow up with four community civil protection groups, providing training on risk management and community resilience and helping update their emergency plans. More than 1,800 children participated in our children's clubs, improving their interpersonal and academic skills through games and group activities. We worked with local partners (police; civil protection groups; and representatives from health, education, and city hall) to advocate for the well-being of children.
