The universal project of the Centro Comunitario Jesús María, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE, is working for the overall development of the Tres Isletas community by providing a healthy diet, comprehensive education, professional training and access to health services.
The project, called “Building a Community with Education and Health,” is working with 25,000 people, comprising boys and girls under 14 years old, adolescents between 15 and 18 years old, and adults.
The beneficiaries take part in a Comprehensive Training Program which develops their skills, values, attitudes and abilities. The center carries out a series of activities focused on their education and the offering of health care, by which it aims to improve their opportunities for the future.
The project includes educational initiatives for children and their parents, training courses for the teachers at the center, and career training for children and adolescents, thus preparing them professionally to build a better future for the community.
The Centro Comunitario Jesús María began in 1999, as an initiative of the nuns of Jesús María, in response to the needs of those who settled in the Barrio Alianza in Tres Isletas.
