Center for Child Development “Guanaquitos”

In 1989, SHARE counterpart the Committee of Family Members of the Disappeard (CODEFAM) “Marianella Garcia Villas,” founded the Center for Child Development “Guanaquitos,” a child care center and nursery school for children aged one through six. Originally founded for children affected by the civil war, Guaniquitos’ principal focus is on promoting children’s rights. This is done by working with teachers, parents, and the children themselves to put into practice respect for the rights laid out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children. Using techniques directed towards small children who do not yet read or write, SHARE’s project with Guanaquitos strives to promote a holistic education and empowerment of children in order to help form a new generation of citizens dedicated to equality, justice and their construction of peace in their society.

SHARE and CODEFAM worked together on the construction of the Monument to Memory and Truth and are both active members of the Romero Coalition.
