Benposta enables kids to live in a family-like environment where they are educated in various aspects of life (social, school, artistic etc.).
Benposta would like to improve the quality of life of these children and give them a realistic chance to help their families by being properly educated. Where they live either there is no school or the school is not working, often their parents either cannot or do not want to educate their children. The idea is a model-like society independent from race, sex, faith, social and national background.
1. Most important is an improvement of the quality of life
2. Educate the children so they can claim their rights and defend their race
3. Educate the children (through “benposta”, which is a proven pedagogic concept) to become leaders in their communities
4. Give them a broader vision of life and the world: culture, eat healthy food, boil water to make it drinkable, waste management, recycling, make them aware of environmental issues, maintain and conserve the nature.
