During Amma’s visit to Granollers, Spain near Barcelona in 2013, Amma offered through Embracing the World to sponsor 49 underprivileged children from the area. Granollers Mayor Josep Mayoral accepted the pledge from Amma on behalf of “Friends of Children Granollers.” The organization used the donation to provide aid for local children who are unable to afford school cafeteria and transportation services as well as medical care, and enrichment based afterschool programs that specialize in arts and sports activities.

This year, Amma pledged another year of support. On October, 8th, 2014, the Mayor, accompanied by the Councillor for Social Services, María del Mar Sánchez as well as Jordi Ponce, the official in charge of the project, took part in Embracing the World’s donation ceremony attended by an audience of several thousand.

The donation will provide another year of aid for 50 local children to give them an equal educational opportunity. Mr. Mayoral expressed his gratitude to Embracing the World’s effort to help underprivileged children in his hometown.
