At Fundación Sevilla Acoge we are pioneers in working for and with the immigrant collective in Spain. Our main objective is to accomplish a society in which multiculturalism and diversity play the main role when it comes to cohabitation. Our mission is to help the immigrant population find as many as possible pathways to integration without giving up, under no circumstances, their cultural identity, values or religion.
This social transformation model is deeply rooted in solidarity and coexistence with diverse cultures in our society. We educate the active citizens from Spain in respecting the diverse cultural identities that take part in it, and we show the immigrant population to recognize their own personal worth and their identity. Through these objectives, we also seek to motivate initiative and progress.
Throughout the years, our work has been awarded by many institutions and organizations with awards such as the II Award ‘Sevilla por la Paz’ by the Área de Cultura del Ayuntamiento de Sevilla, or the VIII Award in Andalucía sobre Migraciones (2010).
