Project description
The foundation provides assistance to children and adolescents living in poverty. Parents of children work at the local market and have very little income. The project focuses on education, and seeks to promote the development of children and thereby improve their future. The children are helped with their homework and receive extra help in the areas where they have difficulty. There are educational workshops in the field of handicrafts, mathematics and chemistry tests and for adolescents in areas such as rights, democracy or sex education. The center hosts cultural activities on Fridays such as outings, cooking, cinema, etc.

These are the activities:
•Help children with their homework
•Improve self-image through creative activities, to create a new hope and reduce stress.
•Children attend events like football games or concerts.
•Guide children on recreational activities.
•Plan several programs for children and adolescents.

Volunteers help mainly in organizing activities, workshops and duties. Fridays are commonly busy days as young people also have lunch at the center and cultural activities are organized

This project just requires a $50 administrative fee once. Additionally, we suggest you to do voluntary contribution for this organization.
