The Casa de la Amistad organization, with the help of Fundación MAPFRE, has rolled out its EDDOFO project which offers educational, emotional and training tools to empower children and young people with cancer.
The goal of the project is to provide the beneficiaries (children and young people) and those around them (families), with the tools to hone their skills and capacities. The goal is to help them to cope with the disadvantaged position they are living in by empowering them.
The idea is also to help them learn specific skills through workshops which will help them build life projects during their time in the project. In these emotional skills programs the idea is to boost self-esteem and learn how to transform adversity into opportunity.
The Casa de la Amistad is an institution that was founded in 1990 with the goal of offering comprehensive and free support to people with cancer from low-income backgrounds, right from birth to 21 years old. Since its founding, this entity has impacted the lives of over 8300 families.
