Club Digital

The Fundacio Salut i Comunitat has been working for more than 25 years to promote the health, social welfare, and quality of life of people in a situation of social exclusion. Although the NGO has several programs already ongoing, they are presenting to HP the project DIGITAL CLUB. Its main objective is to create a self-sustained social space to support people with a lack of technological resources and improve their digital skills, which is becoming a basic need.

The funding of the project will be dedicated mostly to hiring personnel to develop the methodologies and content to achieve the self-sustainability of the group and a minor part to updating and buying new equipment.

Empatías

Empatias is a project that provides innovative occupational therapy for people in Catalunya with functional diversity. The project enables users to express their creativity and skills to make and sell handicrafts (sandals, accessories) to the general public. Users benefit from the creative process and by seeing the real value that their work has for society. Individuals of all levels of ability are able to participate, and together, we all contribute to a more inclusive and diverse society.

Empatias proposes to transform the current workspace and furnish 3 studios that will provide users with more autonomy, higher self-esteem, less dependency on staff, and allow room for future growth.
