Assistance to mothers head of families
This program is one of Faces Foundation’s pillars for it provides a very special and important social value. A mother head of family is the household backbone. She teaches offsprings, prepares edibles, takes care of domestic matters and general family needs. More over, provides and manages household income. The picture on the left shows mothers head of family learning to sew.

Programs in Execution
Health is to think, cook and eat healthy
Conditions inherent to poverty are: hunger, illnesses and lack of health coverage to cure them, and unemployment for lack of education or a trade. Our Programs in Execution attempts to improve family health among indigents. We teach them to cook and eat healthy, while incorporating good hygiene standards to advocate good health and thus prevent illnesses.
Projected programs are...
Personal Hygiene Education, Couples’ interpersonal relationship and, last but not least, Orientation and reference to good health. These programs have been designed and are contemplated within our projects for they contribute to people’s good health and propitiate rational relations among people, more love, tolerance and cohesiveness among couples. Thus, reducing the number of abandoned women incline to joint the legion of mothers head of family. At this moment, none of these three projected programs have assigned budgets. They will be individually or collectively activated when our finances allows it or we receive specific donations for them.
