Our goal is to build a fairer, more accepting and caring society, where diversity is accepted as a value, and each and every person may reach their own life goals. We believe in the possibility of change for each individual and we are committed to those who are more vulnerable.
On April 16, 1996, Fundación Adsis was officially established as a nonprofit social organization. However, our history of social action spans over 50 years.
In the mid-1960s, a group of young individuals shared a common goal: to be present in disadvantages neighborhoods, engaged in social and leisure projects, particularly with the youth population.
This Adsis Social Action took shape in various ways over time and across different territories. In the 1980s, this commitment to presence coalesced around volunteer activities within Adsis civil associations. Gradually, coordination and collaborative work structures were established, such as the State Federation of Social Services and Initiatives.
Finally, in 1996, Fundación Adsis was born with an "associative soul," integrating the wealth of experience from each of the Adsis associations. It was founded to develop local and global strategies collaboratively, enhancing our ability to address issues of injustice, poverty, and exclusion. We are an organization open to the participation of individuals who, from diverse ideas or beliefs, identify with and commit to the mission and values of our entity.
Over the years as a foundation, our work has evolved to respond to the pressing realities and needs of each community where we operate. While our focus remains on young people, we have extended our support to vulnerable adults. Thus, every year, we significantly increase the number of individuals we assist. Today, with pride, we can say that in our 27 years as a foundation, we have accompanied over one million people.
