This socio-sporting school carries out its activities in the city of Port of Spain. In this poor city, domestic abuse and the idea of "easy money" leads to high rates of school dropout and gangs recruiting young people.
Through the socio-sporting school, boys, girls and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 15 who attend state schools, who due to their socio-economic situation do not have access to programmes which promote the healthy use of free time, are offered a safe place to receive training.
In addition to the sports activities, the participants are taught Spanish and Science; receive medical check-ups and nutritional support; and special emphasis is given to strengthening family ties through workshops aimed at children and their parents.
The local partner is Atlantic LNG, one of the largest liquid gas producers in the world, who run the school’s activities with the Ron La Forest Academy, who they’ve worked with for the last ten years.
