Alberto Fernández announced the construction of 300 Children’s Development Centers (CDI), planned in a first stage during 2021 and 2022. The works aim to benefit 28,000 children from 45 months to 4 years of age in the most vulnerable areas of the country. «If we do not give equal opportunities to all, the merit is not enough,» said Casa Rosada, the president, accompanied by the ministers of public works, Gabriel Katopodis; Social Development, Daniel Arroyo; and women, genders and diversity, Elizabeth Gómez Alcorta Also explained that, with this construction, the government begins «with the last, the most needed and where the urgency is most expressed». He said: «When I talk about us all having the same opportunities, I’m talking about a kid born in a poor place having the same opportunities as a middle-class or upper-class guy. That’s what I want.» Fernández highlighted the social work carried out by the villeros priests and members of other creeds, as well as that of social organizations and militants in the most vulnerable areas of the country, and stressed the importance of their contribution especially in the current context of pandemic. «Without them, it would have been all harder, » he said. The representative added that, after the pandemic, the intention is not to return to «normality» that «left so many millions of kids helpless» and that deepened «the concentration of income.» What normality do you want to go back to, which left so many millions of homeless kids, to the normality of poverty, to the concentration of income, where a few are many and millions hungry? We’re not going back to that normal,» the head of state said.
The «normality» we knew generated a lot of injustice, a lot of inequality and a lot of imbalance. Now we have the opportunity to have a new normal that includes us all. pic.twitter.com/v1izXjPEmv — Alberto Fernández (@alferdez)
