Spain– Salesian summer also encourages social inclusion
Madrid, Spain– August 2019– Among the activities organized by the Salesians during the summer there are those undertaken by the Salesian social platforms with the aim that children and young people assisted by these entities have the opportunity to enjoy the summer holidays. In the case of the “Federación Pinardi”, the activities organized in the socio-educational area involved, last month, more than 500 children and young people, accompanied by 58 professionals and 11 volunteers. Participants had a chance to live moments of joy carrying out various activities: games, crafts, educational work, excursions, cooking competitions, days at the cinema and swimming pool. At the end of the urban camps, nature campsites were held in various locations, and the more athletic and adventurous young people were encouraged to complete some stages of the Santiago Way. For professionals of the “Federación Pinardi” these activities have a great educational value as they allow the child’s personal educational project to continue working in a more relaxed environment where leisure and cohabitation play a guiding role.
