IV Congress 100% at Cole will deal with child labor and crime, educational challenges in times of pandemic

San José, Jul 26 (elmundo.cr) – Concern about an increase in the child labor, adolescent and delinquency in children under 18 years of age, as a result of the lags in public education as a result of the pandemic that we are experiencing, will be the focus of attention during the IV Congress 100% at Cole, organized by the Weavers of Dreams Foundation.

For the second year, the activity will be free Y virtual and it will take place on days Thursday 26 and Friday 27 August, of 4 to 5:30 pm, through the platform Zoom.

Although data from the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INEC) show that the number of cases of child labor in the country went from 42,571 in 2011 to 6,700 the previous year, the cuts in classes caused by the pandemic could be taking its toll on the current generation of public school students.

Similarly, the Judicial Investigation Agency (OIJ) evidenced at the beginning of this year an increase in youth gangs, especially in areas with less economic and social development, such as the province of Puntarenas.

Before this panorama, the Dream Weavers Foundation, once again, open a space for discussion with high-level panelists. For him Thursday 26 of August there will be two experts in the field of juvenile delinquency: the Magistrate of the Third Chamber, Álvaro Burgos Mata and the director of the Education Plus Association, Juan Carlos Ramírez Álvarez.

During the presentation of Friday 27 of August we will have Maria’s exhibitions Kathia Romero Cano of the International Labor Organization (ILO) Y Izmir Sánchez Vargas of the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.
