Fundación Sanders tackles the problem of poor academic performance and low job employability of children in Madrid at risk of exclusion by developing a digital curriculum that teaches social and emotional learning skills. These skills have been proven to improve academic performance and are critical skills needed in the workplace.

We want to scale our program so that we can impact the lives of at least 1,000 more kids each year until we impact the entire community of children at risk of exclusion.




What is the social impact of your business?

Our digital curriculum has been implemented in eight (8) after school centers in Madrid, and we impact the lives of 339 children and their families.

What do you want to achieve by being part of Impact Hub Scaling?

We are extremely interested in the opportunity to have an individualized program that helps us to identify and prioritize the key tasks required for us to scale our impact. We value the opportunity to be assisted by a team of knowledgeable mentors that understand how to maximize a social value chain and develop a thorough understanding of project stakeholders.

We also value the potential of connecting with other Impact Scaling participants to get their morale support and share their experiences throughout the program.

Finally, we’re looking for new collaboration opportunities through greater visibility and exposure with Hub members across Europe. We have barely scratched the surface of potential partnerships in Madrid, and have already benefitted greatly.

Please give us one interesting fact about you.

I love Japanese food and culture, and my favorite hobby is collecting Edo and Meji period Japanese art!
