Fundacion Alda is working to improve the development of poverty-stricken boys and girls aged 2-14 years living in 3 settlements in Guarambé, Paraguay.
The Republic of Paraguay is, along with Bolivia, the only landlocked country in South America. Nevertheless, it is crisscrossed by the navigable Paraguay and Paraná rivers, which provide outlets to the Atlantic Ocean. The country has a distinct indigenous character, and both Spanish and Guaraní are recognized as official languages with almost all of the 7 million inhabitants being able to speak both. Guarambaré, Itauguá and San Lorenzo are the cities where projects are carried out with the support of Fundación MAPFRE.
The Fundación de Ayuda al Niño/a y Adolescente con Cáncer y Leucemia (ASOLEU), is carrying out the Solí Home project to provide lodging, education and psycho-oncological support to the patients and their families.
The Misión para la Educación y el Deporte organization has created a model school for boys and girls, offering them quality education and vocational guidance, in addition to providing medical attention to residents of the community.
The Fundación Real Madrid and CESAL run a school fostering social and sporting values in Itauguá which look after 130 boys and girls and young people, between 5 and 17 years old, who come from deprived areas and who are at risk of marginalization.
