On April 14th, MAPFRES’ President Antonio Huertas used his trip to Brazil to learn about the Solidarity League, one of the social institutions supported by Fundación MAPFRE through the Forming Community program.
During the visit to the facilities of the Program of Boys, Girls and Adolescents, developed by the Solidarity League supported by Fundación MAPFRE, Mr. Huertas was accompanied by Rafael Casas, CEO of MAPFRE LATAM, Toneto Wilson, president of MAPFRE Brazil, Marcos Eduardo Ferreira, president of SEGUROS GRUPO BB and MAPFRE in the areas of Auto, General Insurance and affinities, and Fatima Lima, Director of Sustainability of MAPFRE in Brazil.
The visitors were welcomed by the president of the Solidarity League, Ana Carolina Monteiro de Barros Matarazzo, and the institutional coordinator of the organization, Livia Great, who led the visit explaining and presenting the activities conducted there.
The visit began with a presentation by a group of children from the Music Workshop, and then the visitors went to see the Culinary Workshop, the Arts Workshop, the Library and the industrial kitchen maintained by the institution.
The executives had the opportunity to talk with the children who benefit from the workshops and, at the end of the visit, apart from a special thanks, the executives were gifted with a present with the colors of the flag of Spain made by children involved in the program.
Founded in March 1923, the Solidarity League is a non-profit organization that develops socio-educational and civic programs that help more than 10,000 children, youth and adults. Collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE began in 2009 with the support of the Program of Boys, Girls and Adolescents, which serves 480 children and adolescents at risk and locals living highly vulnerable situations from the Raposo Tavares district. The funds received secured a number of improvements to the program, including the library restauration, the purchase of books, the purchase of equipment for the kitchen of the cooking workshop and access of children and adolescents to cultural activities in the city of São Paulo.
