Our mission is to contribute to a diverse and cohesive society that facilitates effective equality, participation and empowerment of people in situations of special vulnerability. For that purpose, we develop specialized initiatives that promote integral human development, intercultural communication, and inclusive processes.



Our vision is to become an entity that is known for the impact of its actions, a benchmark of quality, good practices, efficiency, and sustainability in the area of assistance to people in situations of special vulnerability, as well as in the practical training of a large number of university students and professionals.



These values are the deepest convictions that guide the Foundation’s actions, guarantee the correctness of its vision, and sustain and shape its mission. They also create identity and a cultural brand.


  • Solidarity and commitment: the spirit of the Abrazando Ilusiones Foundation is based on a supportive attitude committed to the interests and needs of people or groups in situations of special difficulty. We recognize their capacity for self-development and we try to influence the factors that in such situations prevent them from having access to decent living conditions.
  • Interculturality, diversity management and social inclusion: we abide by these values turning the social, linguistic and cultural differences into opportunities for the promotion of dialogue and the dissemination of the values that constitute our mission. We also bet on the processes that contribute to the improvement of communication, relationships, exchange, and intercultural integration between people and groups.
  • Equal treatment and non-discrimination: through the promotion of measures that prevent individual or collective practices that undermine the rights of any person, either directly or indirectly, based on sex, origin, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or age.
  • Social justice: we guarantee access, under equal conditions, to the different resources and services to the most socially, culturally, politically, and economically excluded population.
