The CESAL entity, supported by Fundación MAPFRE, has rolled out its “Accompanying a generation” project, which it will be running in its María de Guadalupe Community Development Centre in the Monte Albán community and which has an educational approach and the goal of reducing the poverty of children and young people.
As mentioned above, the goal of the project is to bring about a reduction in the social gap of children and young people benefiting from the project. This is achieved through an intervention model comprising three areas for the beneficiaries: early childhood, education and nutrition.
Each one of these areas encompasses a range of activities: in terms of early childhood, the activities carried out are designed to make the most of their physical and cognitive skills; in terms of education, activities are held which will help them in their academic life; and regarding their nutrition, there is a canteen for them to eat in.
In addition to all of this, there are also specific awareness-raising programs for families, as a cross-cutting aspect of the project.
CESAL is an NGO dedicated to international cooperation since 1988 and is currently operating in 12 countries in Latin America and Africa through educational, healthcare, water and sanitization programs, productive development, micro-enterprise and training for employees and strengthening of civil society.
