We work to ensure children can simply be children

We combat child poverty in Spain through the CaixaProinfancia programme.

  • WHAT WE DO

    With the goal of breaking the poverty circle passed on from parents to children and offering youngsters opportunities for the future, we work to achieve the following

    • Encourage the development of skills among young children and teenagers and their families so they can improve their social integration and independence

    • Promote the social and educational development of young children and teenagers in their families, at school and in society

    • Develop and implement a comprehensive model of social and educational action that helps to improve the opportunities for social and educational development of children and their families

    • Help to raise awareness and mobilise society in eradicating child poverty.

     

    The programme benefits from the collaboration of more than 400 social organisations working in a network and responsible for attending directly to families, prioritising aid and following up each specific case.
