Programmes

The principal objective is to help women to overcome crisis social situations and to then encourage their own personal development in a balanced environment, with the aim of maximising their personal realization as individuals.

 

Remar NGO Educational Program

The socio-economic situation to be found in the majority of the developing countries has multiple consequences, and this can be reflected clearly in the sector of education. In these countries the level of illiteracy is extremely high, and the educational system in general is of a low quality and coverage.

 

 

Remar NGO Helping the elderly

By providing nursing homes, we seek to remedy the situation of loneliness and neglect that many elderly people suffer from and, at the same time, we encourage them to participate in the activities of the Association, so that they can feel themselves useful and needed. In some cases they are suffering from a terminal illness, and we seek to offer them, in their last days, a dignified life full of care and affection.

 

Remar NGO Helping people with AIDS

The appearance of the AIDS syndrome in a generalised form amongst certain groups (drug addicts, homosexuals, etc.…) has opened up a new area of extreme need and, consequently, a new area of activity for those institutions that work within these sectors of society.

 

Remar NGO Health Program

The programme is divided into two main areas. One of these involves going to hospitals and homes for the elderly to visit people who find themselves in some sense abandoned, or who, although they may have someone caring for them, are in need of extra support. Different volunteers carry out the work, which can be anything from a simple weekly visit to a more intensive daily care of the patient if the situation so demands.

 

Guatemala is a country where over 80% of the population lives in poverty, and every day, due to the difference between social classes, the means for living and survival become more limited for families with scarce resources and people suffering from social exclusion.

 

Throughout 2013 REMAR has continued to provide comprehensive assistance to more than 5,000 children who are living in the 200 or so care homes belonging to the Association.

Young people have the creativity and energy needed to tackle major problems such as hunger and underdevelopment, and they have the ability to bring about change in their world, to adapt to the circumstances that are presented to them. They react quickly and easily assimilate practical knowledge, different work skills, new ways of life, good behavioural habits, and so on.

They are the main developmental resource of a country, and so it is important to invest a great deal of effort and initiatives into this sector of the population. They will, very soon, become the agents which generate the resources that contribute to the development of their country.

That part of the youth population which forms vulnerable groups needs to be restored from experiences of social exclusion through the recovery of self-esteem, the development of character-related skills, self-management and the self identity needed to develop a positive attitude towards life.

For these reasons it was decided to launch a programme to provide training for vulnerable young people, with the offer of accommodation included.

Too often, adolescents are defined by their problems rather than by their virtues, and programmes targeted at young people tend to be created in response to crisis or disturbing behaviour. More effective and durable is the strategy of investing in adolescent development from the early years of this important stage of life, encouraging them to become actively involved in discovering their own solutions to the difficulties that they, their families and their communities face.

Young men and women are a very valuable but often little-used asset in the task of achieving positive change. Their participation enhances development projects in the community, projects that improve the quality of life for families, communities and society as a whole. Many assume important responsibilities as young parents and carers, and others as youth leaders, mentors and community activists.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING WORKSHOPS: 

Mechanics, carpentry, upholstering and furniture restoration, office administration and accountancy, dressmaking, handicrafts, printing, locksmith trade, audio-visual communications.

LEISURE ACTIVITIES AND FREE TIME

We believe that the work we do with young people is one of the most important of all the Remar activities, since our future leaders will come from this group. Different events are organized throughout the year, specifically with the youth sector in mind.

Special summer youth camps are organized every year. Apart from providing a few days during which the young folk can share together, these camps offer the opportunity to learn new things and to enjoy a time of leisure and recreation together.
