NEW PROJECTS
School bus for children from 7 rural communities in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala
Education

Céntimos Solidarios, ONGD, Transporte escolar para niños de 12 comunidades rurales en Alta Verapaz, Guatemala

In continuation of our social development programme in Cobán, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, we will improve the educational and nutritional development of at least 75 children belonging to 7 local villages with very poor indigenous populations through the acquisition of a school bus. These children currently have to walk, together with their mothers, up to 4 hours a day along steep paths and often in adverse climate conditions to reach our education centre, where both their educational and nutritional needs are met.



 

NEXT PROJECTS
 Drinking water supply system for educational and nutritional centre in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Céntimos Solidarios, ONGD.

In the Department of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, the construction of a cistern will supply drinking water to the Education and Nutrition Centre, and will enable its dining room for the boys and girls of the region’s 7 villages to operate. At present, the women go to the spring on the mountain to clean belongings and transport the water. As well as collecting rainwater, the drinking water supply system will suitably channel the river water, and a filtering system will permit the water to be drunk, thus enabling the educational and nutritional development of the boys and girls included in our comprehensive development programme.


Supervised flat for people with special needs
Health and wellbeing

ONG Céntimos Solidarios, piso tutelado en Navarra

In the town of Cintruénigo in Navarre, we provide groups of people with special needs with a flat completely equipped for temporary stays. As a matter of priority, we intend to continue our collaboration with ASOVICA, so that we can offer people with problems of mental health or disability a place where they can spend a few days, thus providing a “family breathing space” to the carers who have these people under their charge. People in this group will also be offered the chance to spend a few holiday/rest days. The possibility is also being considered of temporality housing people with difficulties of social origin. The project will be supervised by the corresponding organisations and will be supplemented with recreational/therapeutic occupational activities.

 


 

Special employment centre
Health and wellbeing

ONG Céntimos Solidarios. Centro especial empleo, Buitrago, Soria

In the town of Buitrago, Soria, once our “Supervised house for people with mental illness, at risk of social exclusion” project has been successfully started up, this year we will be tackling its second phase, consisting of offering the residents of the house, and other people with problems of mental health or disability, stable, quality employment in the rural environment, through the creation of a Special Employment Centre. We have begun working on the possibility of offering these employment positions by undertaking a sustainable social economy plan guided by the principles and practices of cooperation, fairness, sustainability, togetherness and democratic self-management, giving people’s satisfaction priority over profit and territorial links. Access to stable, quality employment is a key element in integration and social normalisation for any person, and especially for the groups with difficulties.
