The María Auxiliadora Stimulation and Learning Foundation provides a balanced diet to 100 children
The young ones are aged between 2 and 6
The María Auxiliadora Stimulation and Learning Foundation, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE offers a balanced diet to100 children between the ages of 2 and 6 in Caracas, Venezuela, through the project “Comprehensive Child Development through child care and nutrition”.
The beneficiaries of this project are mostly children of single mothers, workers and students who do not have sufficient resources to provide their children with quality education and a healthy diet. The project also assists children who, due to different circumstances, are late entrants to education or children with learning difficulties.
The aim of the dining room program is to achieve the comprehensive development of children, reducing illnesses associated with poor nutrition and improving the quality of their meals. To achieve this, the Foundation offers lunch and afternoon snacks to these children.
The María Auxiliadora Stimulation and Learning Foundation was founded in 2008 as part of a working woman’s dream, with a strong motivation to provide a quality social service and collaborate with mothers and families of limited resources to provide their children with quality care, attention, education and food.
This foundation works along two lines. On the one hand, attention to their nutrition, offering them a balanced daily and complete diet to ensure their full physical and intellectual development. On the other hand, its efforts are also focused on school support tasks for these children. Many of them have learning and language problems, and do not receive any kind of therapy due to a lack of economic resources.
