CENTRE – FUNDACIÓN AMBOS: Works with children and youth, aged 9-13, of Sabanagrande and nearby places, in a disadvantaged situation (facing socioeconomic challenges) who attend mostly during the afternoons. Every day, two mothers of the children and teenagers, cook lunch for everybody with food provided by the centre. There’s a rota system in order for all the parents to get involved. A typical day at the centre would be structured firstly eating lunch, then a distribution of groups, doing homework, tutoring and/or reinforcement lessons, and finishing up with cleaning the working spaces. The children and teenagers are encouraged to play educational games and use the centre’s spaces to stimulate their creativity. From time to time, Fundación AMBOS also provides assistance to the disadvantaged elderly population of the area (in 2016, a total of 5 elderly men and women), mainly with meals, recreational activities and physical therapies. KINDERGARTEN – JARDÍN DE NIÑOS ANA JOAQUINA ANDINO SILVA: Works with children aged 4-5½, of Sabanagrande and nearby places. The children receive different lessons (reading, mathematics, etc.), play various games, do several handicrafts, carry out civic, environmental and economic activities, and educational walks/field trips around the town. The kindergarten tries to involve the children’s parents in their education by playing Honduran traditional games. The centre Fundación AMBOS and the kindergarten Jardín de Niños Ana Joaquina Andino Silva, complement each other, as sometimes the siblings of the young kindergartners attend Fundación AMBOS. There is only one kindergarten and one school in Sabanagrande, therefore all the children and teenagers interact with each other and know about Fundación AMBOS, so they all participate in a way or another, on special occasions or when they need help with their school work.
