The “Fundación Real Madrid Social Sports Schools” project in São Paulo, run with the backing of Fundación MAPFRE, aims to contribute to the physical, cognitive, psychological and social development of children from vulnerable communities.
The program seeks to promote the social inclusion of children and young people through the practice of sports, passing on values, healthy and hygienic habits, improved academic performance and social and family inclusion.
Additional activities aside from the sports workshops are on offer, such as socio-educational and recreational workshops, snacks and nutritional guidance, family activities as well as social/family follow-up.
The Real Madrid Foundation works to preserve and maintain the historical heritage of the club, to foster the values inherent in sport as their main asset, to promote comprehensive education for children and young people and to bring about the social inclusion of vulnerable populations. Since the first school was created in Argentina in 2003, the foundation’s work has grown considerably and it currently has 261 schools in more than 72 countries on all five continents where more than 33,986 children and young people from at-risk backgrounds benefit from their work.
