CHILDREN of low-income families are being invited to a summer camp to help them cope with social exclusion.

Organised by Velez-Malaga Red Cross and La Caixa, the programme has the dual aim of helping youngsters from Axarquia to achieve academic success.

Along the way they will learn how to deal with problems of social isolation related to their financial status, which can affect their progress in class.

The programme is open to families who have zero employment or whose income falls below a certain level.
