Bolivian Morales, Childhood Ambassador

La Paz, Oct 15 (Prensa Latina) The International Movement ATD Fourth World declared on Thursday Bolivian President Evo Morales Childhood and Family Ambassador during a ceremony at the La Paz-based government palace.

  The international body is thus recognizing Morales’ contribution to the protection of children though measures including the Juancito Pinto bond, an economic incentive granted to children to prevent them dropping out of school.

While appreciating the gesture, Morales called on people present to protect the children, as they are the light and hope of families and of the whole world.

“When we talk about a healthy environment for kids, it is no longer a regional discussion, but rather an international debate,” he said.

He noted that he has put forward before the United Nations the obligation to defend Mother Earth so that we can have a healthy environment not only for children, but also for mankind in general.

In this regard, he recalled that today the social movements of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our Americas (ALBA) met to talk environmental protection.
