This pilot project, called Ciudadela Niños con Valor (CNCV), will focus on the integration for children living with special needs into regular care structures, placing a specific emphasis on children who have been affected by HIV/AIDS. Children at CNCV will receive outstanding holistic attention and be cared for and loved by a staff that is committed to teaching these children their value as children of God. Our project will provide urgently needed care to children who have been neglected and discriminated against, offer unique training to the communities and parents living in the area surrounding the center, as well as serve as a pilot and a model to increase services available to children with special needs and who are HIV positive.
