Be good to the children who are the most neglected



José Leonardo Chirinos Community Centre

09/03/2005: Venezuela

Thanks to contributions from Adveniat, BIS, the NGO Association for Solidarity and other local institutions, it is possible to talk about the activities of a Community Centre in the Sabino area of the city of Punto Fijo. This Centre started its activities in September 2003. During its first year of life, the Centre grew and became a reference point for many children, young people and adults in the area.
The Centre offers the possibility of study help to children and young people. In a similar way, it is available to adults for reading and writing classes as well as work training. On Saturdays, the Centre is also open for recreational activities for children and young people.

This year, due to the increased activities, a new room was built and recently a sports field was provided so that they children and young people would have a place to enjoy healthy games and sports.
This Centre is run by the Marist Community of Nuevo Punto Fijo. We wish to be a presence for all the people of our city, in the compassionate spirit of Marcellin Champagnat. Marcellin used to tell the brothers to be good to the children who were the most neglected… to try to show these children at all times that they respected them and loved them, especially those in most need.
