What is an ALBeRGUE?
Albergue (shelters) are government shelters for children whose families need support. Each child has to qualify to live in the Albergue. Each shelter houses up to fifty elementary aged children.
The Children of the Shelters
These children come to live at the shelter during the school year. The children arrive every Monday morning and live at the shelter until Friday afternoon. They receive meals, have their own bed, and attend school at a nearby elementary school.
The Families of the Children of the Albergue
Families, whose children qualify for attendance at the shelters, live near the shelter and lack the education and economic ability to assist in the development of their children.
The Albergue Shelters are run by a Maestra (manager/teacher), 2 tudors. (female teachers or social workers who leave their families and live with the children during the school year), and two cooks that come for an hour or two a day. State government pays for the building, staff and food. (To the right - actual living conditions of the kids at home)
All children attend a local elementary school. The children are required to wear uniforms to school and at the Albergue. FFHE offers educational classes in English, health and hygiene and other needed topics for the children and their parents.
