The activities of the non-profit association Caminos founded in 2014 are dedicated to the field of education. The main aims include fostering exchange and communication, improving individual opportunities for development and supporting the social inclusion of the population at risk. We don’t offer a permanent service, but we focus on the development and transfer of innovative methods from other countries within the European context to other entities that offer permanent services.
