This socio-sporting school aims to complement and reinforce the socio-educational programme run by the NGO CRECEMOS (DIJO), who are partners of the locally-based Spanish NGO, CESAL. The project offers academic, nutritional and psychopedagogy support to its participants. The school operates out of the Centro de Desarrollo Comunitario María de Guadalupe (the María de Guadalupe Community Development Centre).
The participants are boys, girls, adolescents and young people from the city of Oaxaca who live in situations of extreme poverty and vulnerability - particularly the case for those who hail from Colonia Monte Albán -, whilst the participants' families also receive support. Other children to benefit are those who have some sort of psychomotor deficiency, those with a low educational level and those with a track record of school failure.
In addition to the sporting activities, participants also take part in additional socio-educational activities, such as workshops on hygiene, IT, dance, performing arts, crafts and citizenship. Activities involving parents are also promoted, in which they receive training on values, with the aim of promoting the student's overall training as a part of the construction of their life project.
The main financial backers of this school are the Fundación Mapfre (Mapfre Foundation) and Microsoft.
