Participating in extracurricular activities can benefit students in many ways, including improving their academic performance and mental health, and developing good peer relationships. These activities have a positive effect because they offer children the opportunity to explore their identity, develop initiative, learn to control their emotions, and acquire social skills.
Unfortunately, many families living in low-rent housing cannot afford to sign up their children for recreational activities.
These activities have recognized benefits for both mental health and motivation in school. This is why the Foundation wants to increase its funding for sports and cultural initiatives for these young people.
