The SFK educative program provided parents and children, teachers and facilitators a methodology in which boys and girls learn to recognize and handle their socioemotional potential, with the goal of establishing and maintaining positive relations within society. It is an education program to enhance their self-esteem, to reflect on their purpose in life, to strengthen their resilience and to awaken the desire to make a difference in the world. “Winning in the game of life”.
