We celebrate World Down Syndrome Day!
Emphasizing Iberdrola’s commitment to this group, Fundación Iberdrola España has invested, within its social action area, more than €300,000 in this group, benefiting more than 4,000 people.
From the foundation, we collaborate with organizations that help people with Down Syndrome, intending to raise awareness within society and highlighting the value of these people, as well as achieving a positive change in their lives. That’s why today, we want to make a special mention to these entities and disclose the great work behind all of them:

Asido Cartagena Association– “Quiero Vivir Mi Propia Vida” (I Want to Live My Own Life): Learning Housing Project for Independent Living. The objective is for young people with disabilities to live together in the same home and develop their skills and acquire the necessary competencies to be able to function independently.
Aspace Cáceres Association– Project: “The keys to inclusion are written with ones and zeros.” The objective is that people with different degrees of disability can achieve their independence through training itineraries to be able to enter the labor market in rural areas.
