For the world qwe want

ABD

The Bienestar y Desarrollo Association (ABD in Spanish) is a non-governmental organisation, that defends the rights of people in a socially fragile condition. For more than 30 years, we have supported them through different moments of their vital trajectories -individually and collectively- as well as took action within their communities.

We focus all our efforts on generating personal autonomy and social coexistence through principles such as ethics, proximity and quality.

We believe in a fair society which eradicates inequalities and social exclusion. Where every family and children have the same opportunities, where women and men can live in real equality, and the elderly and dependent people or those with functional diversity may have a dignified life.

We believe in a future in which the young -and the not so young- use drugs in a conscious and critical way, where there are no evictions and the right to housing is respected, but also the right of asylum; we wish to host migrants and refugees so that all of us can live with equal opportunities, regardless of our cultural background.
