For over 15 years our volunteers have supported this center, by forming a team with the students' parents and the students themselves in order to carry out much needed and highly beneficial activities and tasks.

On 22 September the volunteers, the 6th grade primary school students and their teachers spent an intensive morning installing the center's new flowerpots. In order for the task to run smoothly a fun and pleasant working dynamic was established that helped all those taking part get to know each other. The morning finished up with snacks to help everyone regain their strength.

Apart from improving the school's facilities, the true importance of a day such as this is the chance to share experiences. Everyone learns something but, above all, the students and their parents get to know people from other backgrounds who can offer them a new perspective on their abilities and goals.

These activities are part of the volunteer program in International Social Projects. The goal of the Fundación MAPFRE's volunteers carry out is to support the extraordinary work that this college does to provide opportunities for children and young people in Valle de Chalco Solidario. Together we can transform the lives of so many of them.
