Previously, from the institution they sent a note to the Government requesting the installation of more artifacts. Another of the great requests to the Government is to have its own building, since they are in one place borrowed”.

“We need that space to move the boys there because, since they all have different pathologies, it must be a place conditioned for them”, pointed out the director of the institution to El Chorrillero.

Being a self-managed school, the subsidy provided by the Government is only enough to pay the salaries. For the rest of the expenses, they take each one out of their pocket or they make collections. The institution cannot hire psychologists, educational psychologists or other professionals due to this lack of money.
