The Goal of Peter Maffay Foundation
The vast facilities of the Peter Maffay Foundation, located in the middle of the nature, but protected and supervised (such as Finca Ca’n Llompart) provide children and families the necessary space to share experiences, to discuss their various problems, to escape isolation and to move from lonely life to community life, by sharing experiences and empathy.
Working together in the nature, with the opportunity to explore and become aware of their strengths and limitations, exposure to previously unknown life situations, learning about nature cycles, all these enable each participant to actively build inner insight.
"To get from the edge to the centre"
means to develop and enhance one’s creative abilities and talents, and to understand one’s creative powers as drivers of “positive self-experience” of children and their family members. For children and teenagers who experienced social or personal alienation, e.g. those who come from big cities, this process may be explained simply by “Back to the roots”.
