Vacation periods are times when loneliness, boredom and disaffection play a very negative role in the development of children and adolescents who find themselves without family or whose parents have lost custody. In these situations, their development is often truncated, and after certain toxic environments are taken advantage of, they fall into crime networks, drugs, gangs, prisons…
Through our volunteer program, we offer SOS Children’s Villages a set of educational, recreational and sports activities that complement BIOTACADEMY during the holiday periods, as well as training for all those young people who want to devote themselves to the world of education, or other areas that request it.
The BIOT Foundation contributes to the implementation of the BIOTHOME program in centers that offer educational, health, family and psychosocial resources to the most disadvantaged children in Africa, with the aim of improving their personal and human development.
BIOTHOME is a space for education, values, family, refuge, fun… In short, BIOTHOME is their home.
