The Fundación de Derechos Civiles (Civil Rights Foundation) is an organization for the public good registered in the Foundations of the Work Ministry and Ministry for Social Affairs. Within the foundation, the three organizations (Association of the Three Thirds, Assembly of Juvenile Civil Rights and the Office for the Defense of Soldier’s Rights) focus their work on issues of exclusion or defenselessness, and realizing programs aimed at social integration. The foundation works towards greater opportunities for those who live in urban areas, especially those with less access to basic necessities.
The generic objective the of the Civil Rights Foundation is to contribute to the extension and expansion of the status of social rights, of its leaders, its funds, list of recognized rights and application to all people living in urban areas without exception.
The field of Civil Rights, in the first, second or third generations, is vast and complex. The Civil Rights Foundation develops diverse programs aimed at a wide range of social groups. We take full responsibility over these programs and guarantee the maximum technical expertise by working with professional and specialized personnel in each one of our programs.
Furthermore, our working on a wide range of programs allows the foundation to incorporate a diverse task force covering an even greater spectrum within the complicated field of Civil Rights. Now, the Civil Rights Foundation counts on volunteers from all the autonomous communities of Spain boasting consolidated, active groups in most of them contributing to the greater benefit of society in issues for all.
At the Civil Rights Foundation, we are convinced that there exists a more efficient process of providing necessary services for city dwellers without expanding or reconstructing the Public Administration. This objective can be achieved by taking advantage of the mobility of civil organizations with their greater flexibility and those with an altruistic character which have the ability to hire volunteers. We would now like to give thanks to the institutions and persons who share our ideals and have collaborated or supported the programs organized by this foundation.
We hope to have responded with our programs and activities to the needs of people concentrated in urban areas.
