We are a Spanish NGO of international scope, created in 2001 by social entrepreneurs in orer to promote the use and knowledge of technogoly as a means to bridge social gaps, generate social innovation and citizen empowerment, favour their rights and enhance their opportunities. Our work is based on collaboration. We currently have a network of 1,500 cybervolunteers and more than 500 organisations with which we collaborate directly and regularly. With our activities we reach about 30,00 people annually.
At Fundación Cibervoluntarios we always like to work in collaboration with other entities and organisations, to build from local to global. About 25% of our activities are performed in rural areas. We want people to make the most of ICTs, especially those who, for different reasons: gender, age, professional and social environment, lack of motiviation or resources... may have greater difficulties, or the ones we simply want to strengthen.
Fundación Cibervoluntarios is funded through several channels, both public and private, that allow us to develop our activities, projects and programmes. Each contribution, wheter economic or in kind, is used to perform as many actions as possible. All the activities we carry out are always completely free for the final beneficiaries or end-users.
