ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Pillar: Fight against school dropout
Funding Period: 2018-2020
The Spanish Red Cross' mission is to help vulnerable people at the national and international levels through volunteer action. Responding to needs from a human and community development perspective, the organization provides for vulnerable communities by taking volunteers' individual skills and deploying them for wider benefit.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project provides an afternoon educational space to strengthen children's academic skills. Volunteers help children do their homework and prepare for exams, assist in developing educational resources (e.g. new education centers) and more. The project promotes healthy habits and personal development and guarantees students at least one meal per day. The program welcomes participants ages six through 16 who experience social and learning difficulties.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
“We have been in the course for two years and love it. The lectures are very productive and we have learned so much. Moreover, we have met wonderful people who are always willing to help us. They help with our homework and our personal trouble; they are great."
- Barbara and Tamara, ESO students
