Campeones de la Vida NR A.C. is carrying out, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE, the “Escuela Nariz Roja” project in which it offers 60 boys and girls suffering from cancer, from the state of Jalisco and with limited resources, a school where they can continue their studies during their illness.

This initiative provides educational support from preschool to high school to these children and young people who, due to their disease and the treatments they undergo, are forced to put aside their studies. The center adapts to the rhythm of the students, understanding their illness and offering them alternatives such as free education.

Avoiding school dropout is one of the main goals of the project, which also aims at students enjoying academic conditions equal to those of any other child or young person their age. To achieve this, the initiative offers both face-to-face and distance schooling.
