Fundación El Arenal is a community center with an after-school program and nutrition program for urban youth and street children from Feria Libre.
El Arenal is a foundation serving 84 children and adolescents from one of the poorest sectors of Cuenca. It features an after-school program, an educative counseling program, and also a nutritional lunch program. El Arenal is a safe haven for many children whose families work long days in marketing booths in the Feria Libre, the city’s largest “mercado.” Most children and families who rely on services from El Arenal are rural, indigenous migrants who come to the mercado to sell their wares.
