This September we’re working with almost 800 students at IE whose work will enhance the lives of countless vulnerable people for years and years to come
Today our work with IMBA students – a total of 250 over five days – begins to create raised planters, seating areas, a wheelchair accessible ramp/walkway, a shaded seating area and some wood storage racks for the Occupational Rehabilitation Center Carmen García de Gúdal – Leganés in Madrid.
This is a rehabilitation centre and social care network for people with serious and lasting mental illness. The garden and growing area will be used as part of the rehabilitation process.
Also starting today, for a total of eight days this month, we will be working with 400 MIM students at Ilunion Sociosanitario, a residential and day centre for the elderly in Madrid.
The centre promotes an active lifestyle in the elderly, through a variety of therapies, activities and programmes adapted to the needs of each person. The students will create a selection of shaded seating areas linked together via a decked walkway.
On Saturday a further 80 MIF students will work on this project too.
Later this month we’re spending three days with around 390 Masters students who will be creating a quiet garden area made up of planters and shaded seating and a play structure for children at Colegio Público Santiago Ramón y Cajal.
Thanks to the students’ hard work, these charities will benefit from Splash infrastructure for years to come, while the new students, who have never met before, have the opportunity to bond over the experience of a lifetime.
