One more year we renewed our agreement with R.C. Celta de Vigo Foundation. This agreement is classified as of Galician interest. The objective of the Foundation is to disseminate sports as a value for life, and this agreement is based on promoting healthy competition, endeavor, companionship, and good life-habits.
In addition, we examined in particular its Celta Integra Foundation aspect, which relates to sports improvement, social relations, and total integration of young people with functional diversity.
The Bagpipe and Percussion Band Foundation in Pontevedra is a deeply rooted and well-known cultural organization not only in Pontevedra, but throughout Galicia. Formerly responsible for teaching traditional Galician musical instruments, it nowadays promotes the values, respect, and generational transmission of Galician musical traditions.
It is for that very reason, and because it shares the same values as those of the Group's CSR, that we signed a collaboration agreement with this Musical Foundation, to support, above all, the transmission of Galician culture through music, and traditional musical instruments.
One of the main organizationsf contemplated in our CSR is Discamino, an organization that helps people with disabilities to complete the Camino de Santiago. Its founder, the award-winning and tireless Javier Pitillas, gave a lecture at the Health Fair, on the Camino being a challenge of overcoming the environment, where people with disabilities share their experiences.
"Let no one tell you that you cannot". With this statement Javier Pitillas, promoter and head of the association DisCamino, sums up in the most accurate way possible, his organization's motivation, having already made 93 trips to Santiago de Compostela, by which the dreams of almost half a thousand people with disabilities came true; they learned that such a challenge was within their reach despite all the difficulties.
His testimony on the second day of the Health Fair, organized by Asomega at the Casa de Galicia in Madrid, moved everyone, for its simplicity, the clarity of his message ("The Way is a way to enjoy while helping others enjoy, to accompany others in their happines", he said), and the honesty he conveys.
His speech was structured around three videos in which he explained the evolution of DisCamino: the first one is about the origin of the initiative, the second shows realization, with the first route, and the third, its development in recent years.
We renewed our collaboration agreement with the Juan Maria Center, an entity that takes care of girls and boys with disabilities, affecting more than 200 families. We examined their different projects, and we decided to collaborate with their dual training project, training while working. The Center opened a shop, at Nasas shopping mall in Nigran, to train young people with disabilities to become sales assistants. The training lasts for three years, and they obtain a sales assistant certificate. They also learn to manufacture and design clothing from a professional designer.
