THE COMMUNITY CENTER
The community center is an extracurricular activity for children age 7 to 14, it promotes experiences to develop social skills, new capacities, including the acquisition of daily living skills. Afternoons are filled with gardening, crafts, mosaic, drawing, painting and directed games. Stories and watercolor painting enrich the experiences acting in a therapeutic and curative way.
Parents are also included in this project with various activities that encourage the social integration and quality of life. As most of them are people with financial and social disadvantages, it is an opportunity to get in contact with artistic and cultural skills never before experienced.
This reverts to the benefit of the children themselves, since integration with the school is expanded and their own family lives become richer.
