Art Projects

We’ve joined initiatives to promote the different expressions of the arts. Studies have demonstrated that from an early age, children benefit from cognitive process of development, and improving their writing, reading and comprehension skills.

With “Arts and Smiles”, our in-house arts program of early intervention for children and young teens at risk, we seek to prevent juvenile delinquency and other difficult social problems.

Community Impact

The new basketball court of the school Maria Auxiliadora, inaugurated in 2013 at a cost of $170,000, promotes the healthy recreation and entertainment in the school’s children and youngsters. It supports the school-community integration as well as the preventive policy and elements of social control.

We join our efforts in the promotion of projects and recreational activities which advance recreational habits in the community, within an educational framework of joy and fun, as well as through healthy, entertaining and satisfactory processes toward the increase in learning and an improved social and cultural human growth.
