Manos y Naturaleza has developed since 1985 an educational model in Peñalolén, Santiago de Chile. It works as a "second house", cozy and entertaining, for children with limited opportunities, who participate in it in their free time after school. This model promotes personal, family, social and academic development and accompanies them throughout their development process.
It has been called "Formative Model" because children are expected to acquire a set of habits and feel identified with the values that Hands and Nature promotes, such as: joy, solidarity, generosity, respect, work, perseverance , strength, commitment, self-confidence.
