Yo Encuentro is a registered Charity association in Spain and was established in 2017. The shop is in Los Belones and through sales and other events at the end of 2022 had distributed funds in excess of €75,000.
It has 5 trustees all La Manga Club residents and it is run entirely by over 15, volunteers, many from La Manga Club.
The Childrens Project is part of Yo Encuentro.
The shop is more like a ‘boutique’ because of the high quality goods and items that are donated for sale.
We seek to support smaller charitable causes with our funds including animal charities, families in poverty, education grants, crisis situations and the like. We also operate a Food Bank which is always in demand. In 2023 we are providing €500 per month to purchase fresh chicken for the El Buen Samaritano Food Bank in Cartagena, they feed some 800 families per week who live in poverty.
Our website www.yo-encuentro.org gives more detail, contact and map.
