CENIT ("The Centre for the Working Girl") is based in South Quito and has been helping working children, especially girls since they are the most vulnerable, since 1991. CENIT’s work is wide reaching and inclusive, incorporating medical, social and psychological support, education and vocational training. CENIT’s team consists of around 40 local employees and at any one time between 20 to 50 international volunteers. Annually CENIT reaches out to some 700 children and their families.
