Knowing “Mamás en acción” One Team VII, Week II


The second training session of the seventh One Team project with Valencia Basket aimed to increase the group's cohesion, in a first contact with teamwork, highlighting the individual contribution of each of the participants to this group work.


Talking about the information, the session served to learn a little more about the NGO "Mamás en Acción" from the hands of Majo Gimeno, its president, who told us about its beginnings "During a visit to the hospital I saw that a child was alone and sick, without any accompaniment and I asked how I could help. They told me that It was needed a lot, but that I could not personally, it had to be done through a NGO and there was none. This is how it was born" she says.


The idea grew very soon after that moment "Moms in Action was born from the impulse of a mother, from the empathy of being able to tak a kid in. I came to my house, I took my daughter into my arms and I couldn’t get that kid I had seen alone out of my head" she explains. "Now we are no longer a group of friends, we have more than 500 volunteers and here we are, we haven’t stopped helping children" she explains. The prize, she says, is "when a child wakes up wondering if you're there" she recognizes.


Regarding the One Team project of Valencia Basket, the president valued that "it brings infinite benefits. Without this help, they probably would not have stepped on L'Alqueria del Basket. It is an injection of self-esteem and affection that they don’t usually have "concludes.
