Guatemala congratulates Canada on a successful election day

During a meeting, the United Nations in 1954 called on countries to recognize that children deserve a life of dignity. From this account, after that call, Guatemala decided to designate October 1 as Children’s Day, with the goal of remembering that the rights of minors must be respected.

According to the institutions accompanying the basic guarantees of childhood, the said celebration should be inclusive, without prejudice or discrimination, since everyone has the same right, especially children with disabilities, who can also celebrate this date with health, education and inclusive dignity.

Change your life with treatments

Learning Spot is an organization that for many years has provided support for children with disabilities or psychomotor retardation, as a way to ensure the dignity of children.

Through the sale of food, the entity manages the financing of treatments. About 25 infants currently benefit from these types of services, including those who do not have access to a learning center.

Since 2015, Diana Monzon, founder of the project, and a group of therapists and practitioners from universities have helped nearly 100 children.

As a result of this epidemic, many of his patrons withdrew, turning to the preparation and sale of pastries to cover most of the treats.

Special education, physical therapy, sensory integration, pet-assisted therapy, hydrotherapy and early and timely stimulation, are the services offered at low prices, after a socio-economic study.
