ETNIA BARCELONA FOUNDATION IS THE SOLIDARITY PROJECT OF ETNIA BARCELONA.
OBRA SOCIAL “LA CAIXA”
In collaboration with hundreds of organisations and thousands of volunteers, we join forces to combat poverty and exclusion, to promote excellent medical research, to bring culture within everyone’s reach and to improve the education of children, both today and tomorrow.
INSTITUTO JOAN BROSSA
Works on a voluntary basis with our “Looking into your eyes” project. Both students and teachers on the course will be responsible for mounting the frames with prescription lenses.
ASOCIACIÓ CATALANA DE OPTOMETRÍA I TERAPIA VISUAL
The goal of the Association is to help improve the visual health of underprivileged minors, aiding them to access visual therapy through the services of their member optometrists. And, to ensure that the children on the programme benefit, they offer visual therapy to the Foundation, which finances the treatment, at reduced prices.
CENTRE UNIVERSITARI DE LA VISIÓ
It’s mission: to stand as a reference for quality visual care, pursuing excellence in all appropriate areas: both teaching and research. Amongst others, its goal is to bond with society to allow greater insight into the social work done by the University.
VISION FOR LIFE – ESSILOR
A philanthropic programme which seeks to accelerate initiatives looking to correct all bad eyesight by, first of all, creating an awareness and then training and designing the basic infrastructure required to safeguard individual eyesight. The programme is run and owned by Essilor as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy.
For more than 3 years Westpack have been working close together with Etnia Barcelona Foundation on CSR activities in Africa. Westpack has had the pleasure to support Etnia Foundation in their fantastic eye examination projects in Africa, which also includes vision tests and distribution of glasses for children. The close collaboration with Etnia on such projects fits perfectly into Westpacks focused work on their own CSR philosophy.
