Ms. Danielle De La Fuente – The Amal Alliance, Inc
The Amal Alliance is a non-profit organization that brings alternate education, books, education materials, sports and yoga activities and nutritious snacks to displaced children living in refugee camps around the world during their formative years. Through education, physical activity programs and a safe place to gather, they plant the seeds of hope for a better future and formal education while empowering these vulnerable children during a challenging time in their lives. The programs are designed to instill mindfulness, a positive attitude and social skills among diverse groups of children from various countries, cultures, faiths and ethnic backgrounds. Parents of children in the camps are invited to the programs to learn about sustainment. The Amal Alliance aims to bring their passion and education programs to children in three refugee camps in Cios and Athens, Greece in 2018.
