About Us

EL NIDO

We address the problem of teenage pregnancy by working to improve the living conditions of young mothers and their children through programs that promote comprehensive development and social non-exclusion.

We are a non-governmental, social non-profit program of the ZonaJ Foundation. We promote the dignity and solidarity of all people, the protection of the rights of teenage mothers and their children, who suffer from poverty, exclusion and inequality. Through interventions that allow for comprehensive support during pre and postpartum, we invest in the development of their physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual capacities, as well as their parenting skills to equip them to face the challenges ahead with confidence, self-esteem and with a hope found in Jesus Christ as a model of how to live.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

FASE 1
PHASE 1

This is the entry point into the program that seeks to cultivate healthy foundations in adolescents, in their physical, psycho-affective and spiritual areas, that will allow them to grow and embrace this beautiful new life as mothers.

FASE 2
PHASE 2

The emphasis of this phase is to strengthen the bond between mother and child by promoting adequate stimulation in the cognitive, language, psychomotor, and socio-affective development of children.

FASE 3
PHASE 3

In this phase, the first objective is for the young mothers who have not finished their studies to rejoin the educational system. The second objective is for these mothers to acquire the necessary skills to enter the workforce or discover a way to be economically self sufficient.
