Title

The Guatemala community day care program: an example of effective urban programming

Author

Ruel, Marie T.; Quisumbing, Agnes R.

Description

The Hogares Comunitarios Program was launched in Guatemala City in 1991 in response to the need for childcare in an urban environment. By providing parents with low-cost, quality childcare within their communities, the program strives to improve children's diets, nutrition, and development, while enabling poor parents to engage in income-generating activities. This report evaluates the program's implementation, its service delivery and quality, and its impact on children and their families.
