Aldeas Infantiles

On Thursday this week I went to visit a placement that we haven’t used in a while, called Aldeas Infantiles, which is a daycare – or really a series of daycares – in a poor community where the parents have to work all day long and would have to leave their young children at home alone or in the care of an older sibling.  By providing a free daycare service the parents are able to work, the older siblings are able to work harder in school, and the youngest have a safe place to stay and get a head start in school.
