Fundación Iberdrola España collaborates with Fundación Balia on providing academic support to children with educational problems
This is one of the projects selected in our Social Grants scheme, in which the Fundación Balia offers academic support at school to children with educational problems.
Fundación Balia is a not-for-profit organisation that has been devoted to providing comprehensive support to children and teenagers at risk since it was set up in the year 2001.
Its mission is to help disadvantaged minors achieve better social integration and it runs schemes in deprived communities throughout Spain with high immigration rates.
Fundación Balia backs and implements very detailed pedagogical projects that prevent young people from dropping out and becoming isolated, combating school failure and promoting education on values. They are also committed to raising awareness of the reality of disadvantaged groups in society and encouraging the general public to get involved and take action to improve this situation.
The Fundación Iberdrola España is supporting this initiative as part of its Social Grants Scheme, which promotes activities in support of people that are disadvantaged or who find themselves in a situation or at risk of social exclusion, making an active contribution towards enhancing their quality of life.
These grants are intended for private not-for-profit organisations with public utility status. The goal is to help meet the basic needs and enable better social integration for the most vulnerable sectors of the population, while also backing other initiatives of interest that are aligned with the purposes of the Fundación and the Social Responsibility strategy of the Iberdrola Group.
