We at SanLucar want equal educational opportunities for all children, rich and poor alike – since a good education is the key to having a future. At the beginning of March last year, almost all schools in Spain closed for half a year due to the Corona pandemic. For the children who didn’t have a computer or Internet access at home, the situation was bad. They were excluded from online classes and missed out on a lot of schooling.
That’s why we have become active in putting our desire for educational equality into practice. Together with the non-profit organizations Coordinadora Solidaria de los Estibadores del Puerto de Valencia and La Fundación Iniciativa Social, we organize one hour of tutoring each for the children who belong to our solidarity kitchens »El Puchero« and to the project »Despierta Sonrisas« in Valencia. They are supported in learning and also in doing their homework. The volunteer tutors also consult with the schoolteachers in order to help the children as effectively and as specifically as possible.
