Working for children in El Salvador with the Fundación Amigos del Real Madrid
Sports combined with psychological and technological training to positively educate children from 6 to 16 years of age
Through this project, Fundación Real Madrid works in the ten sports schools it runs in El Salvador. All of them include sports training sessions that combine structured training with blocks of educational content. These sessions seek to strengthen the youth leadership skills and emotional intelligence of the beneficiaries and are complemented by training in digital content: the use of tools, better and safer connectivity and how to find employment through the internet.
The children and young beneficiaries had to face particularly harsh living and/or family conditions during the 2020 lockdown. Many of them have been exposed to situations of violence and delinquency. Most of the municipalities in which the schools are present are very degraded by street gangs. Fundación MAPFRE participates in this project so that children and adolescents can envision other forms of leisure and relationships beyond those that are prevalent in these areas.
