They are projects developed by the Fundació Privada Ared, Horitzontes Abiertos, BarcelonActua, Actua SCCL and Salut Sense Sostre

The Familia Torres Foundation, created in 1986 by the centenary Penedès family winery, announces the social projects in which it collaborates this 2022. There are five proposals from different national NGOs focused on the protection of children, the empowerment of women and the help to vulnerable groups, which the Foundation’s board of trustees has selected from among the 90 projects presented by 81 entities from all over the territory in this year’s call for aid.

Three of the projects in which the entity participates are aimed at helping women at risk of social exclusion. One of them is the social and labor integration program for women on probation promoted by the Fundació Privada Ared in Barcelona, ​​with the aim of providing support for the social and labor integration of 12 women from prisons.

The other two are the Hasen project of the Madrid Fundación Horizontes Abiertos, which provides residential shelter and support to vulnerable women and minors, as well as psychological support to reintegrate into society, and the BarcelonActua Foundation’s Famílies del Món program. This is aimed at single-parent families in a vulnerable situation to facilitate their linguistic integration, professional training and job placement, as well as offering support in the education of young children.

In the field of childhood, the Familia Torres Foundation participates in the Espai Familiar project of Actua SCCL, a non-profit social initiative cooperative, to give psychological care to minors and relatives of three Residential Educational Action Centers (CRAE) in Penedès. To help vulnerable groups, the entity collaborates this year with the Street Hospital of the Salut Sense Sostre organization, made up of volunteer doctors, nurses and psychologists that operates throughout Catalonia. Through this project, people living on the streets receive medical assistance in a mobile field hospital.

Beyond these five projects chosen by the board of trustees for this year, the Familia Torres Foundation has also joined the humanitarian aid to Ukraine through the purchase and shipment of food and essential products to serve the population that is forced to flee the war in his country. The intention of the Foundation is to continue providing aid through different organizations while the conflict lasts.

Today we celebrate International Women’s Day and from the Familia Torres Foundation we want to congratulate you all.

Promoting the empowerment of women is one of our objectives and is part of our mission. In our foundation, the women of the Torres Family who form the Board of Trustees have been and are involved in the management of both cultural and social projects to improve our environment.

Carrying out initiatives that ensure social integration and their own well-being and that of their families, we ensure that women are the true protagonists of their lives.

Today we want to remember some of the most important and inspiring projects that we have been supporting for several years.

Between 2006 and 2008, the Familia Torres Foundation collaborated with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation in the construction of a school and a vocational training center for more than 100 women from the Kadiri region (Anantapur – India).

For more than 10 years we have been collaborating with the ARED Foundation in Barcelona to accompany and personally and professionally train women from prisons in Catalonia.

Also in Barcelona, ​​together with BarcelonActua, we support women from various countries around the world for social and labor inclusion, along with school support for their children.

Finally, in 2022 we have begun to collaborate with the Fundación Horizontes Abiertos de Madrid, for residential care and psychological support for ex-prison women and women at risk of social exclusion with dependent children who do not have the training, work, family, and economic resources enough to live with dignity.You can find more information about these projects and about the foundation at https://fundacionfamiliatorres.org/
