The Abrazando Ilusiones Foundation was born to a long-lived dream, made with love and care by its founder, Alejandra Encarnación Ruiz Ruiz. During her last years of life and against the clock, as she was fighting a serious illness, she decided to start this project to transmit her goodwill to highly vulnerable groups, betting on interculturality, social inclusion and underlining the importance of the educational process.


The natural cycle of life sometimes forces us to dismiss certain dreams, but it also allows us to embrace new ones. In this regard, the founder’s determination, far from acting as a mirror of her fears, became a faithful reflection of her will to infuse lives with action. Thanks to the dedication of all of us who are part of this project, we make a dream last, while contributing to the formation and achievement of new ones.
