OK Rent a Car is working together with AEA Solidaria, a non-profit association formed of Globalia and Air Europa employees, on a project involving the opening of the La Matica centre in Santo Domingo. The NGO has embarked on this initiative after providing assistance to young people at risk of social exclusion in the Caribbean country for four years.
The La Matica centre has been designed as a day centre for caring for and protecting children and young people at risk of social exclusion in the municipality of Boca Chica in Santo Domingo.
According to the AEA Solidaria chair, Marta Andreu, the actions carried out in this day centre will include meal provision, education and meeting the affective and emotional needs of children and young people.
The La Matica centre will be built on a 2,500-metre plot provided by the local council and will be able to accommodate 140 people, although its facilities, which will include a dining room, music room, urban garden, sports court and outbuildings, is to be used by twice that many.
At OK Rent a Car we are very proud of being able to collaborate with solidarity-based initiatives like those undertaken by AEA Solidaria.
