We bring our commitment to people and the planet to life by supporting charities such as Girona Est, an organisation that works with historically marginalised communities in the east of the city of Girona.

Girona Est focuses on improving the quality of life for its residents, especially among the younger demographic, through sporting cultural, educational and social initiatives to promote equal opportunities.

Why Girona Est?

We have partnered with the Girona Est foundation as a way to support the district in improving local living standards. This part of the city is home to some of the most marginalised pockets of society in the region, with high levels of unemployment, low levels of continued education, a large informal economy and low wages.

Girona Est Sports School

This is a clear example of the foundation’s role in the lives of the district’s young people. Through sport, this school tackles subjects such as values, equality and teamwork.

“Knowing how to win and lose, resolve conflicts, build relationships with boys and girls of different parts of the city [...] In a nutshell, it’s about promoting sport as a social-educational tool of prevention and personal growth.”

Ensuring an equal future

Most people in this area would like to stay here and improve the local quality of life. School attendance is gradually improving as residents have taken on a more proactive role in neighbourhood life.
