The Pere Tarres Foundation (Fundació Pere Tarrés), faithful to its mission of being by the side of the most vulnerable groups, continues to attend these weeks, respecting the restrictive measures of confinement, children and young people at risk of social exclusion that it usually accompanies.
The educators of our socio-educational centers, the reference people for these families and children, make daily phone calls or videoconferences to support them in different areas (psychological, resolve doubts about the current situation, propose activities to do with the their sons and daughters) and, at the same time, to detect possible emergency situations.
In this way, the current health crisis and confinement is causing these vulnerable families to be living in even more precarious conditions than usual (lack of work, lack of financial resources, lack of computers at home and emotional support), and children suffer even more.
For these reasons, the Pere Tarrés Foundation is calling on companies and individuals to help cover these most urgent needs:
💻 Internet connection and technology:
- Buy computer equipment from 120 families who do not have it at home. Thus, their sons and daughters will be able to follow school classes from home.
- Cover the costs of telephone line, ADSL or fiber optic to 120 families who currently do not have the resources to bear this cost and have no way to connect with their environment.
😷 Sanitary protection material: The Pere Tarrés Foundation is organizing activities to offer children in a vulnerable situation this summer, as they will need more than ever relieve the emotional weight of the last few months and be able to disconnect from daily problems. To carry out these activities safely and respecting health measures, we will need:
- 10.000 FFP2 model masks for educators -
- 20.000 gloves
- 5.000 sanitizing soap
🍎 Economic resources to buy food: The Pere Tarrés Foundation finds that in some cases we have to bear the cost of buying food when we find that a family is not able to solve it immediately through other entities or administrations.
In these exceptional times, everything that can be contributed as much as possible will be a great help for children and families who need it most.
Thank you so much for your support.

Together we will strengthen their support network
The companionship, care and help that the children and families who participate in the socio-educational centres’ activities receive has a very positive effect on their well-being.
We guarantee that the right of children to education and leisure goes beyond school walls.
We provide opportunities for children to have fun and learn through play, acquire values individually and as a team, and develop healthy habits.
