Bragado Club began this week the social inclusion program called “A Club for all” that daily includes about 150 boys and girls from the city. When the initiative was launched in 2018, for the leaders it was a dream that had yet to materialize socially. The program had two seasons of continuity and the acceptance of children and their families, according to La Voz de Bragado.
However, in March 2020 it was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally, the improvement in the health situation allowed this week to start the third year with more than 150 registered from 6 to 12 years old. “The boys come for free; It is a program aimed at children who cannot pay a social fee or a sport, so they come for free and practice the sports that are in the club and other recreational activities such as music, theater”, they explain from the coordination.
The boys go to school after school. On the morning shift, starting at 9 am they receive breakfast and then do two activities with a teacher: soccer, basketball, tennis, rugby, swimming, hockey, artistic gymnastics, music and theater. The same logic takes place in the afternoon: the day begins at 2:00 p.m. with activities and ends at around 5:00 p.m. with a snack.
As in the pre-pandemic editions, the idea of the leaders is to also add children from the Barracks. As an extra, for the beginning of this season, they will attend Temaiken for one day for free. This arose by virtue of the repercussion of the project and the invitation of the Foundation that manages the renowned park.
The expenses of teachers, materials and the food supplement for breakfast and snack, local companies make their contribution and the members who wish to contribute with an extra social fee. The contributing companies so far are Acerbrag, Aibal, La Bragadense, Arcor de Diego Limonta and Panadería La Nueva and Prenut.
