Día Solidario is a non-profit association that is officially registered in the Spanish Register of Associations. Set up in 1997 by our employees, it is a social organisation aimed at fostering education for children and young people, as well as improving the living conditions of the most disadvantaged communities in the countries where we operate.

The activities undertaken by Día Solidario are financed by contributions from our employees around the world (who voluntarily donate one day’s-worth of their annual salary) and contributions from companies in the group (which match the amount collected each year by their employees).
The group also pays for and provides the necessary resources to manage the association so that 100% of the funds raised can be used on the projects.
