Fundación Iberdrola España celebrates the international day of people with disabilities

Today at Fundación Iberdrola España we celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The International Day of Persons with Disabilities was declared in 1992 by the United Nations General Assembly.

Fundación Iberdrola España launches a call for applications for its Social Program every year, whose objectives are to contribute to mitigating inequalities and helping to promote future opportunities for those at risk of social exclusion, paying special attention to children, young people, and women.

One of the lines of work of this program is social inclusion for people with disabilities, financing projects that support children, young people, and the occupational centers they attend, offering them a space for the development of skills that will enable them to integrate into society and enter the labor market.

In the last call of the Social Program, Fundación Iberdrola España has selected 8 projects aimed towards people with disabilities:
