CONSTRUCTION, EQUIPMENT, HEALTH, NUTRITION, SUPPORT AND ACCOMPANIMENT IN THE OPERATION. Actually Toacaso does not have its own infrastructure. The Children’s Center, where children from 0 to 3 years old attend daily, works in a borrowed warehouse, totally inadequate and insecure. They do not have the necessary equipment, nor the didactic material indispensable for their physical, intellectual and social development. Most mothers take their children to work in the fields, the smallest always loaded behind their backs. These children are permanently exposed to the inexorable climate of the páramo suffering from diseases. The parish of Toacaso is located in the foothills of the Ilinizas, province of Cotopaxi, its climate is very diverse from temperate to cold, but cold predominates. Toacazo records a birth rate of 36% per year, surpassing the national rate of 27%. The average number of children a woman has in this area is 5.
