The winning project of the First Call for International Projects is “Red Nose School for children and young people with cancer.” A program aimed at contributing to the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of children with cancer through school quality programs tailored to their health circumstances.
The project takes place in the state of Jalisco and provides free and quality educational services to children and youth suffering from cancer with limited resources, from preschool to high school.
The project was the winner of the First Fundacion MAPFRE’s Call for international Projects launched in 2015 with the aim of bringing awareness to society about social cooperation and providing social organisations with a platform to inform about their social action initiatives.
