As every year, we actively participate in the training provided by those in charge of the Code of Conduct program, regarding ESCNA (Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents) to acquire greater guidance and knowledge that allows us to carry the message to our collaborators. . Furthermore, we are very committed to the objective that we seek to always go hand in hand with the sustainability and well-being of our children and adolescents.
