The Associação de Apoio a Criança e ao Adolescente (ACRICA) is carrying out this project with the support of Fundación MAPFRE at the Casa dos Girassóis in the city of Piraguara. This initiative provides assistance to 241 children who live in an environment of violence, drugs, and a lack of alternative leisure activities.
The project offers children and young people various extracurricular activities, with special emphasis on theater and performing arts, as well as other activities that allow them to access digital inclusion and music education. Various abilities of students will be worked out, such as diction, memory, body control, logic or social coexistence.
Another area of focus of the project is nutrition. La Casa dos Girassóis provides these children with four meals a day (breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner.)
ACRICA, with more than 22 years of experience, looks after the actual needs of the population of Piraguara, developing projects with the aim of improving the quality of life of children and their families, awakening in them the idea of exercising their civic responsibility.
