Unicef’s representative in Peru, Paul Martin praised the interest of the Peruvian government to take actions that allow the allocation of resources in the most effective manner.

“Social inclusion in very important to guarantee rights and take out the country, not only from the situation, but from the mentality of poverty,” he said.

Martin noted that is essential to provide children quality services and opportunities to exercise their rights and develop their skills.
