about the innovation

Flore-Ser

What we do?

The FLORESER workshops of the AMAR VIVIR HOY FOUNDATION provide tools for personal transformation through mindfulness techniques, neurolinguistic programming and art for the integral development of children and young people in vulnerable situations so that they can develop in an authentic and responsible way, transforming the world with their talents and skills for a full and sustainable life. 

Why we do it?

We think that the actual population education is based on doing and not on being, which promotes competence and disengagement from human values ​​such as solidarity, cooperation, respect and comprehensive development of skills and potential, excluding vulnerable children and young people exposed to situations of anxiety , abandonment, stress and suicide
