The Maria Auxiliadora Foundation for Stimulation and Learning, with the support of  Fundación MAPFRE, provides a balanced diet to 100 boys and girls  aged between  two and six years,     in Caracas, Venezuela, through its “Comprehensive Development in Care and Child Nutrition of Boys and Girls” project.

The beneficiaries of the project are mostly children of single mothers, women laborers, and students, who can’t afford to provide   the children with a quality education and a healthy diet. The project also looks after children who, for various reasons, have started their education late, as well as children with learning difficulties.

The objective of the meal program is to ensure the children’s comprehensive development, reducing illness associated with poor diet and improving the standard of the children’s meals.  To this aim, the Foundation provides the children lunch and an afternoon snack.

The Maria Auxiliadora Foundation for Stimulation and Learning was founded in 2008 as part of the dream of a working woman, motivated to offer   outstanding social care   and to work with mothers and families of limited means   to give their sons and daughters support, education, and   nutritious food.
