#Opalaviolencia – Put an end to violence is an initiative of Fundación Alda within the framework of the project “My school, my community, my life: protected and free form violence”, carried out with the support of the European Union in Paraguay and the endorsement of the Ministry of Childhood and Adolescence and the Ministry for Women.
We invite you to join the campaign so that the message transmitted gets to every corner of the country in a clear and powerful way: “If we see any act of violence, we must report it, because each act of mistreatment is a punch and each punch … may be the last one”.
This year in particular, our young members were in charge of everything related to the preparation and implementation of the program of the meeting. The latter was hold for the fifth year in a space of integration and learning, which was very much expected by the young people who are part of the projects by Fundación Alda.
Among the activities that took place, we highlight the lecture by Mr. Eduardo Escobar, Internal Audit and Anti-corruption Director of the National Youth Secretariat; and the dissertation by Mr.Fernando Hamuy, representative of UNICEF Paraguay.
Enthusiasm, colors and smiles made the day an experience that had a very positive impact in their lives as students and referents of their communities.
Many thanks to the young people for facilitating a space of reflection and learning, Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) for supporting this activity, the speakers of the National Youth Secretariat and UNICEF, the Universidad Americana and all the people who made possible this unforgettable experience.

Every day, children have access to nutritious and balanced food. Fruit, vegetables, protein and carbohydrates in their right proportions are carefully selected and established on a weekly menu.
In addition, the nutritionist periodically monitors the healthy development of each child who attends the center by means of controlling weight and size, By doing so, it is possible to identifiy nutritional risks in children and to educate families in order to promote healthy nutritional habits.
These activities are possible thanks to the support of Fundación Mapfre, the Government of the Central Department , Sugar Factory La Felsina and the Program Abrazo by the Ministry of Childhood and Adolescence.
