The “Real Itaguá” “Social Sports School project in Paraguay aims to contribute to providing a comprehensive education for vulnerable children and adolescents through preventive and educational action.
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.
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 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.
ASOLEU provides comprehensive treatment to 200 minors from birth to 18 years of age and their families, who find themselves in an unstable economic situation. At the Hogar Solí they receive food and lodging and tutoring, as well as psycho-oncological support.
The Fundacion Alda provides comprehensive education and covers the basic needs of 130 boys and girls under 14 years of age who find themselves in situations of extreme poverty. It also trains their mothers, fathers and tutors through development workshops.
