The Pan y Amor Association, through the school of the same name, provides preschool, primary and secondary education to 450 children and young people as part of the “Educating children without Education Opportunities; Street Vendor Children.”

This initiative, supported by Fundación MAPFRE, is focused on children and young people at high risk of exclusion, to whom the association offers quality education, a balanced diet and medical and psychological support. They are also given guidance regarding their incorporation to the workforce and they can take advantage of internships in companies.

Pan y Amor studies the children’s socioeconomic situations and offers them scholarships to pursue their primary and secondary studies at the school. The main objective of the project is to train these young people, and their families, to be responsible for their own development, involving them in social change in order to break the circle of poverty.

Since 2000, Pan y Amor has been offering hundreds of children the right to enjoy their childhood, taking them off the streets and offering them a quality education based on values, so that they become the owners of their own future.
