Fundación Meniños is a non-profit organization that works protecting children and families since 1996. We believe that it's the children’s right to live in a caring family. That is the premise the Foundation works with, in projects aiming to help families who are struggling raising their sons and daughters. When it's impossible for children to remain in their own families, we move forward into getting a proper foster care or adoptive family for them.
We work also in preventing and fighting gender-based violence and any kind of abuse against children.
The Foundation has catered directly for 9.238 children and 6.952 families. We have also carried out preventive and educational projects for 126.681 pupils and 7.986 teachers in more tan 1.000 schools.
Our working model is based on quality, transparency and scientific research.
We have a team of 60 very specialized people, mainly in social education and psychology and we carry out our projects throughout two areas of Spain: Galicia and Asturias.
We belong to several international networks that work for children welfare such as the European Anti-Poverty Network.
Our work has been recognized on several occasions, as the Good Practices 2016 award given by UNICEF in the call for Child Friendly Cities and Good Practices.
