CENIT helps working children, their families, and other members of the communities. The schools teach educational and life skills to around 100 children per year, many of whom would not otherwise have this opportunity. The street outreach program helps over 70 children and their parents by bringing educational resources to the streets. Their drop-in-tutoring center (CEA) provides tutoring to about 90 children. Their new,” Street Clinic” is working with the government’s “sub-centros” to improve the delivery of health services to the people in the Camal community.
The CENIT’s Health Services department strives to provide the, “right to health” for children and their families in the South of Quito through education, health promotion, and relationship building with local health centers.
As a paediatric nurse volunteer, you would serve as an important part of the CENIT team and would be responsible for some of the health services provided at CENIT’s clinics. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone seeking the chance to gain clinical and public health experience while making a real difference in the lives of children and their families. Volunteers must be registered paediatric nurses and know an intermediate level of the Spanish language.
