The Foundation ‘La Caixa’ gave last spring Mas Casadevall aid to start the project and educate recycle in the call for the Promotion of Autonomy and Care for Disability and Dependency.
Educate and recycle is an initiative that is part of the general objectives Mas Casadevall summarized in the motto “Educating conduct independent.” The project aims to introduce new users in learning related to the environment and the acquisition of the value of recycling. This also improves the organization globally in this field and its relationship with comunitat.Partint the basis that, in general, people with ASD have an interest and motivation in the sandbox, working with the hypothesis that the creation of new shares are socially established that our kids have more tools and instruments to approach to the environment, being understood, accepted and even more space to share with society around them. We think that some users will even be used to better understand the world.
The project activities will be conducted within the activities of the workshop Recycling Environment–Mas Casadevall and seek to improve the habits of users with regard to the selection and collection of waste generated in homes and workshops. For this reason, the project provides for the purchase of materials and resources that facilitate the selection and waste storage facilities at the property, resources tailored to the capabilities of users; and transport to the corresponding tip.
From the beginning FAMC consider the 3 R Recycling: Recycle, Reuse and Recover. This is because, firstly, the individual consciousness of the majority of workers in the center. On the other hand, the potential as a rural Mas Casadevall offers to store waste and promote jobs and the recovery of organic waste. Thirdly, the habit of the entity that used to working with limited means always has to take everything that gets through donations and gifts, ingenuity and creativity (furniture, clothes, etc .. .). Gradually, the work done in a “spontaneous” has taken shape within the structure of Mas Casadevall and this is a good opportunity for total incorporation orderly in the everyday dynamics of the center.
