Due to the world coronavirus crisis, many of the countries decided that classes should be interrupted . This makes kids stay at home to avoid infections, which entails a problem: free time, since many of them do not know what to do to have fun.
In this sense, many of them cannot attend a “community” diversion, since the exit from their houses is limited, which is why they must satisfy that need from home. For example, Télam's website comments that Argentina decided to launch JUGar, a national program to guarantee the right for children to have fun, although initially it will be virtual.
