Iberdrola is committed to improving the quality of life of people by supporting the most vulnerable groups and promoting their social inclusion in society to seek a better future. Fundación Iberdrola España collaborates with Fundación Canaria Centro de Atención a la Familia, a foundation that supports the most vulnerable families in the Canary Islands by resolving conflicts and improving communication within child-parent relationships. In addition, it offers guidance services to the people who attend the center and to the families of the children and adolescents.
Fundación Iberdrola wanted to collaborate with the “Lluvia Day Center” and its program of school support, training, guidance, and food for families at risk of social exclusion. The program aims to improve the quality of life of children and their families.
To this end, the center carries out various types of education: Education in responsibility, both in parents and children; education in healthy eating habits and the commitment to the importance of values such as tolerance, respect, and empathy towards others. As well as working on the empowerment and self-esteem of the people who participate in the program, cultivating emotional intelligence in a positive sense.
