The year 2020 has created huge challenges for the third sector and it has highlighted its importance as an essential agent and collaborator to mitigate the impact that the pandemic has had on the most vulnerable groups of our societies. The circumstances caused by COVID-19 have modified our usual activity, but they have also encouraged us to seek new ways of thinking and performing.
This year has served us to carry out a strategic reflection about our purpose and raison d’être, which culminates with the approval of the 2021 Action Plan in October 2020. Thus, we also include among our objectives to strengthen our management capacity, to enhance and expand our network of strategic alliances, and to contribute to creating a culture of volunteering within the Abrazando Ilusiones Foundation.
You can find on our website the activities and projects to which the Foundation has dedicated its efforts and resources during this year and which have led to progress in the three cross-cutting areas in which our actions are framed. But going beyond the work that we have done, we highlight the motivational value that all of us who belong to this institution have forged. We are really satisfied to participate in projects with groups at risk of exclusion and in situations of vulnerability.
The achievements made so far constitute the greatest incentive to continue supporting the purpose built and looking ahead to the future, we continue working on the creation of new proposals, expanding our network of collaboration agreements and making ourselves known to society.
At the Abrazando Ilusiones Foundation we assume as our own the new challenges that the future holds in a changing world where the value of a person and difference, equity, educational quality and the search for justice and peace must be priorities. We will continue working to turn our society into a more creative, inclusive, and sustainable space. Finally, I would like to thank all the professionals and collaborators of the Foundation who made it possible for these challenges to become a reality.
