“Offering access to a familial and socially nourishing environment for children who live in precarious situations can significantly influence the course of a life.”

Strengthen family, social, community bonds to support 

teen mothers or families facing difficulties

Early childhood development is considered to be a very important phase in determining the quality of health, well-being, learning and behavior throughout life. Family, social, community and relational environments in which children grow strongly influence who they become. A lack of individual, social and financial resources among mothers, particularly during early pregnancy, can weaken the general environment and jeopardize a child’s development.

Children Action has set up programs targeting the prevention of child development problems, promoting protective factors for strengthening family units to ensure the well-being of at-risk children.

ASSISTING TEENAGE PARENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN

 

Children Action runs alongside the Kaleidos  Foundation in Argentina a project consisting of assisting teenage mothers, both in their

roles as parents and in their lives as adolescents.

Preserving family bonds, promoting child development and encouraging parents autonomy by creating a personalized plan for each mother are the main goals of the project.

14,569 mothers, fathers and children have received support since the beginning of our activity

"Investment in early childhood is the most powerful investment a country can make, with returns many times the size of the original investment over the course of a lifetime"
