International presence and projects
The entity, guided by its commitment to improving the quality of life of people with special difficulties, carefully follows the evolutions of the European environment in relation to this undertaking, both in the field of the European Institutions and those forums from which work is done to defend the interests of people at risk of social exclusion.
