Introduction

The association develops its projects in two ways: on the one hand, in Badalona, where it is dedicated to the orientation and training of those immigrants in difficult situations when it comes to communicating in the language of our country; and on the other hand, in Kabul, Afghanistan, promoting the education of disadvantaged children.

Our philosophy is to foster self-confidence and the resilience of our students to make them independent.

All the contributions we get are channeled directly into a network job. We optimize public and private resources to offer a quality service with minimum expenses. We do not have salaried personnel nor do we have our own real estate or facilites, but the partners or benefactors make their spaces available to carry out our activities.

What We Do

IN CATALONIA:

NEWCOMERS’ TRAINING:

We teach language to the newly arrived people and we offer leisure time and good atmosphere.

We fight illiteracy among people who have not had the opportunity to study in their country of origin.

INFORMATION TO THE NEWCOMERS:

The volunteers inform the users who have difficulties when communicating about the existing resources in the city.

We carry out information campaigns about the benefits of learning and knowing the local language.

INTEGRATION WORK:

We carry out all those actions aimed at promoting autonomy and personal growth for social normalization.

AWARENESS-BUILDING ACTIVITIES:

We promote education projects and actions in favor of peace as a way to dismantle rumors and stereotypes.

We foster knowledge, reflection and dialogue through lectures, exhibitions, activities and didactic materials, training courses, conferences, etc. to make the community aware.

We generate knowledge on issues related to education between Asia and Europe.

We collaborate with other entities that work with the same purpose.


IN KABUL (AFGHANISTAN)

CHILD SPONSORSHIP:

Sponsorship by Ponts per la Pau is direct. Each sponsor allows a child to go to school, have their books and uniform and eat a meal at school.

SCHOOL WORKSHOPS:

We organize playful and learning workshops for the sponsored children to find a space for accompaniment and training.

CHILDREN’S COACHING:

The coaches are the older boys and girls of the school, who offer their support in the school workshops.

READING CLUB / SCHOOL LIBRARY:

The entity buys and has in store reading books. We offer those books to the students of the school so that all of them can take advantage and enjoy them while reading.
