Puerto Gaboto (Agenzia Fides) - A new reception center for minors, CCI, was opened in the town of Gaboto, in the southeast of the Department of San Jeronimo, Santa Fe province, with the aim of preventing and eradicating domestic child labor. More than 30 children between 0 to 4 years of age will benefit from the project, which is part of the program 'Work is not for children'. The reception centers for children are designed to prevent domestic child labor in urban and rural areas. In these spaces, the little ones are looked after while their parents work. Here they can play, receive medical care, proper nutrition and schooling. There are already more than 30 operating centers across the province. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 14/03/2017)
