A total of nine small houses are projected for 2024, one of which is precisely the one created by the Juan Gualberto Gómez airport collective, and another already completed by the Ministry of Construction (MICONS) in the capital city.

The experience of children’s houses is a program that was resumed in 2021 with the purpose of responding to the deficit of circles and alleviating the situation faced by the family with the arrival of a small child, and where children, children of mothers, fathers or guardians are attended in entities that from their economic and material conditions can allocate funds for their opening, maintenance and ensure their sustainability.
