The work of Probitas Foundation in Spain
Probitas Foundation has specific programs to support minors in vulnerable situations in different places in Spain. Among them, Dinem Junts!'s program stands out, unique in addressing the problem of teenagers in a vulnerable situation in a global way after the implementation of the intensive schedule in public institutes. With Dinem Junts! the foundation seeks to improve the physical and mental well-being and nutrition of teenagers, providing them, in addition to nutritious food, a protective space where they can do sports, acquire healthy habits, do school reinforcement tasks and relate to their equals. This is a clear example of the foundation's network who work together with entities, educational centres and administrations. On the other hand, Probitas Foundation continues to work on the Reinforcement of Child Nutrition (RAI), an initiative with which it provides dining grants.
In 2021, 800 teenagers were part of Dinem Junts! Program thanks to the €556,000 invested by the Probitas Foundation, while RAI reached more than 23,000 children from 196 different schools, with an investment of €1.86 million.
