Protección y Desarrollo de la Niñez y Adolescencia Trabajadora
Conditional cash transfer programme implemented by the Municipality of Guatemala City with the aim of reducing poverty. The programme originated from a diagnostic carried out in 2004 that identified a lack of basic services in some areas of the city , especially the neighborhoods that surround the landfill (dump). With the support of the Italian Cooperation for Development and the Institute of Economic and Social Research (IDIES) of the Universidad Rafael Landivar the group intervened in that place to reduce child labour as garbage collectors. Thus, the CCT was established as a local management articulated in the academy, the local government and the international cooperation. There is a modality of citizen participation through the "Comités Únicos de Barrio"- CUB (Unique Neighborhood Committees). These neighborhoods have been one of the most disadvantaged areas of the city until when gradually they have been transformed with community support. It is important to note that all municipal interventions are targeted and are complemented by the participation of the Unique Neighborhood Committees (CUB) organized in each community.
