The Center for Diagnosis and Orientation (CDO) can be visited by any member of the community who needs it, there you can find trained personnel to provide support to families and especially to children who need specialized help in learning.

"Ana Ivis Rodríguez Milanés, director of the CDOWe are prepared to guide teachers and families so that they know how to treat those students who need special attention, and one of the greatest advantages we have today is the privacy that the center has from this constructive work," Ana Ivis Rodríguez Milanés, director of the CDO, told 26.

"What rejoices us the most is to know that the center has a great impact on the population, they already know that it exists, and who are the specialists they can find, ranging from psychologists, and speech therapists, to social workers willing to support the universe of 362 students who come directly in search of specialized treatments."

One of the major works currently being carried out in the municipality is the repairs to the Victuro Acosta López elementary school, the Tiernas Margaritas childcare house, and the completion of the second childcare center in the town.

We are in an institution that was made when the Battle of Ideas and since those years it had never had a repair as at this moment, with a budget of three million pesos for everything that is done that is related to the perimeter fence, the transformation of the classrooms, the exteriors, the square...

"In this own institution is already created a pantry and a dining room of the Koika project, which consists of a Korean collaboration that evaluates the maintenance of a snack for the students. For this, we must have the support of the institutions of Agriculture, cooperatives that are also part of this initiative, with which contracts have been made to obtain food, vegetables, and fruits, which should cover the food of the enrollment."
