María Jesús Pinto reported that on this occasion nine people with disabilities are carrying out the training action "which has been financed in its entirety by 'La Caixa' Obra Social and which has meant an investment of 5,000 euros. The department has made available to the students a gardening monitor "and a psychologist who is in charge of the orientation towards the reinsertion of work" of the participants who, "for their assistance, receive a benefit of 400 euros per month" during the realization of the formative activity. The course, which will be finalized this Friday, December 16, has incorporated "as a novelty", a workshop of floral art. The councillor and the representative of the financial institution have taken the opportunity to exchange impressions with students and teachers in the preparation of the programs that the AEDL in Benidorm periodically launches and some of the ideas proposed, especially those aimed at the professional reintegration, will be studied directly by technicians of the department.
