Presentation of the residences
CIMA is organized in 6 residences that welcome children and teenagers who decided to join the CIMA Home and be rehabilitated by their own will. They are in a situation of high vulnerability and risk: violence, mistreatment, life in the street, drug abuse, theft, behavioural problems or Internet addiction. These problems are usually caused by very complex dysfunctional family situations. At home, children and teenagers lacking care and love of their parents were victims of mistreatment and abuse and some were abandoned by their family.
Each residence accommodates between 14 and 16 children from 9 to 17 years old, according to their age and the reasons why they come to the CIMA Home. Two tutors rotate to accompany them every day -day and night- with affection, availability, understanding and firmness in order to:
- -Coach with tenderness the boys in order to comply with the rules of discipline and training, the requirements of daily coexistence in order to improve their self-esteem and respect for others.
- Ensure their intellectual and physical performance with a levelling school, a practice of sports and cultural activities daily.
- Help them discover their talents in various workshops
- Prepare their reintegration into their family.
Most of the boys go to the state school in Cieneguilla. Those who do not go to the state school, receive their school training within CIMA itself in the levelling classrooms and CEBA (Alternative Basic Education Center)
