Havana, Apr 10 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Saturday highlighted the six decades of children’s daycare centers, educational institutions that have contributed to women’s incorporation into society.
On his Twitter account, the head of State described the founding of those centers, on April 10, 1961, as ‘an act of love, emancipation and social justice’, and noted the boost given to them by then Cuban Women’s Federation (FMC) President Vilma Espin.
‘Congratulations and the tribute to the female founders and workers of that huge human work,’ Diaz-Canel tweeted.
Children’s daycare centers were created to provide care to children under school age to allow their mothers to work.
There are 1,086 such institutions nationwide that provide care to more than 137,500 children.
