Abstract

Este número de SEEDS, desarrollada en cooperación con el Grupo Asesor sobre Cuidado y Desarrollo Infantil, y apoyada por UNICEF, busca reunir los elementos críticos del trabajo de la mujer y el cuidado infantil, estudiando el tema desde tres perspectivas: el cuidado infantil como servicio que permite que la mujer pueda trabajar, como fuente de empleo para la mujer, y como respuesta a los requerimientos del desarrollo infantil. Examina tres distintos tipos de cuidado infantil apoyados por UNICEF en tres continentes—Asia (Nepal), Africa (Etiopia), y América Latina (Ecuador). Los tres proyectos fueron desarrollados específicamente para madres que trabajan, y dos también son parte de programas que apoyan actividades económicas para la mujer. Estos proyectos no solo han servido como soluciones positivas para mujeres que trabajan, sino que han hecho posible que muchas de ellas reciban entrenamiento y desarrollen capacidades de administración y liderazgo, además de conseguir empleos como cuidadoras infantiles.

This issue of SEEDS, developed in cooperation with the Consultative Group on Early Childhood Care and Development, with support from UNICEF, seeks to bring together the critical elements of women's work and child care, reviewing the issues from three different perspectives: child care as a means of enabling women to work, as a source of employment for women, and as a way of meeting the developmental needs of young children. The report examines three different UNICEF-supported approaches to child care on three different continents—Asia (Nepal), Africa (Ethiopia), and South America (Ecuador)—that have been developed with the needs of working women in mind and, in two instances, alongside program components that support women's economic activities. These examples not only offer positive solutions for women who work, but also provide opportunities for many women to receive training and to develop management and leadership skills as well as gain employment as child-care providers.
