Kusi Warma trains parents of the districts of Turpo and Ventanilla in early childhood comprehensive care so that children from 0 to 3 years old reach a normal nutritional status, develop language according to their age and receive attention and care based on affection from their parents in communities organized to monitor the evolution of their development.


We propose a comprehensive and sustainable approach to tackle delays in the development of children under 3 years of age. Keeping in mind the ecological model, we have established differentiated strategies for each level of participants: family, community and local government. Now we are in the process of raising awareness in the family and community level for which we use the method of advocacy and the strategy of research and dissemination of knowledge so that they can recognize childhood as a key period in the lives of human beings in hopes to develop an effective and comprehensive early childhood system.
