Currently impacting +400 at-risk families living in Boyle Heights, South LA, and Watts - our U.S. programming is an interdisciplinary empowerment initiative that serves as a critical community tool for reducing Childhood Obesity rates.
WHAT OUR PROGRAMMING PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR WORK
I’ve seen a positive change in my daughter’s self esteem with the Vida! classes. She used to be so quiet, kids were bullying her at school. But the Vida! activities gave her a new confidence, in sports and in healthy eating.
US Program Participant
Playing wheelchair basketball showed me that people with disabilities face a number of additional barriers-to-sport. Now I know how important it is to promote and enable sports for all!
Spain Program participant
I’ve lost 10 pounds so far because of what I learned during Vida! this year. My doctor said that if I keep up this weight loss, I can go off of my blood pressure and cholesterol medications. That’s what I’m working towards now.
