  • The initiative, in collaboration with Bankia, will allow social entities in Granada to use different facilities of the CajaGranada Fundación throughout the year.
  • The collaboration between the two entities makes it possible to extend the concept of aid to NGOs and local associations

A total of 15 associations operating in Granada will benefit from the ‘We help those who help. Lending Spaces’ programme and may access some of the most relevant spaces of the Memoria de Andalucía Culture Centre to use them throughout the year for their activities, events and presentations of programmes whose purpose is of a cultural, social or welfare nature.

Bankia and CajaGranada Fundación have completed a pioneering initiative that complements the charitable programme ‘We help those who help’, aimed at supporting non-profit organisations in the provinces of Granada, Jaén, Almería and Málaga.

The spaces are lent for non-profit purposes and Fundación CajaGranada and Bankia will bear the cost of opening the spaces and the necessary personnel, having previously reached agreements on this aspect.

The objective of this call is to provide a space of reference, audiovisual media and logistical support for NGOs and non-profit organisations that, at certain times, need to have access to facilities such as those of CajaGranada Fundación to organise certain activities and hold unique events or provide presentations of their programmes and projects.

The organisations selected in the 2019 call are the following:

  • Borderline Granada
  • Asociación Cultural de Ciegos de Andalucía
  • Asociación Conecta
  • Asociación Help Me Please
  • Asociación Síndrome de Down
  • ONG Prokarde
  • Asoc. Arte Diverso y Visible
  • Parroquia Ntra. Sra. de los Dolores
  • Agrupación de mujeres sordas de Granada
  • Agrupación de personas sordas de Granada (ASOGRA)
  • Asociación Síndrome 22q Andalucía
  • Fundación Banco de Alimentos de Granada
  • Federación de Asociaciones de familiares de enfermos de alzheimer y otras demencias de Granada (FEGRAFA)
  • Asprodes Granada
  • Proyectos Solidarios para África

Twelve of them will carry out different activities at the CajaGranada Theatre and the other three will use the spaces of the Memoria de Andalucía Culture Centre dedicated to workshops and temporary exhibition halls.

Bankia and CajaGranada Fundación are proud to continue to strengthen their collaboration with the welfare and social fabric of Granada, which is doing so much to alleviate situations of inequality and exclusion in our society.

  • The Assistant General Director of Communication and External Relations of Bankia, Amalia Blanco, says that "we firmly believe in the agricultural industry, which is fundamental for the future of the country, its demography and social cohesion"
  • Bankia Foundation for Dual Training and Feporcyl have also signed an agreement for the promotion of vocational training

Dualiza Bankia -the brand through which the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training channels all its activities to foster vocational training and its dual modality-, Feporcyl -Federation of Associations of Pork Producers of Castilla y León- and the Regional Government of Castilla y León announced today the first dual course of Agriculture and Livestock Vocational Training for the pig farming industry in the region.

The course will start next September thanks to the decision of the Regional Government of Castilla y León, which has enabled the Centre for Agrarian Training of Ávila to make it possible.

It began with a need expressed by virtually the entire pig farming industry at a conference held by Dualiza Bankia, Feporcyl and the Regional Government of Castilla y León last October, in which professionals asked for help to alleviate the shortage of trained personnel that the industry is facing.

Upon consideration of this request, it was proposed to solve this issue through the training of students, by promoting dual vocational training, to which practically all the attendees were committed.

During the presentation of the new course, the participants have explained the benefits of this type of education, which entails a high degree of employability and rising salaries due to the lack of trained technicians.

The Assistant General Director of Communication and External Relations of Bankia, Amalia Blanco, said that "we firmly believe in the agricultural industry, which is fundamental for the future of the country, its demography and social cohesion; this industry deserves all our support".

She also underlined that, by promoting projects such as this one from the Bankia Foundation, "we are doing what we wanted, becoming a catalyst, making things happen with our commitment to education".

The chairman of Feporcyl, Miguel Ángel Ortiz, assured that "today is a very important day for Castilla y León. Whenever a vocational training centre is opened, it is good for society".

Ortiz recalled that "the pig farming industry not only creates farms, it also provides qualified employment, and now it will give an opportunity to any young persons who want to stay in their homeland and live in their own towns and regions"

For his part, the head of the territorial service of agriculture and livestock of the Regional Government of Castilla y León, Francisco Gil, stressed the importance of la course "with a 95% job placement". He also announced that, for starters, "the school will work with between 15 and 20 students, to do things correctly. We will all learn and I am convinced and excited about a project that is a pioneer in the region".

During the round table, the Head of Agricultural Business of the Regional Division of Bankia in Castilla y León, Jesús López, underlined the "special connection between Bankia and the agricultural industry in Castilla y León, where we have 16,000 customers; 120 offices, many of which are agricultural branches that have specialised personnel who offer not only suitable products and financing, but also advice to continue advancing in professionalisation. Bankia is a leader in Ávila and Segovia, where we manage half of the subsidies from the Common Agricultural Policy of our farmers and ranchers. We support the sector, we have in the past we will continue to do so".

Bankia Foundation for Dual Training and Feporcyl sign an agreement to promote vocational training

In addition, the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training and Feporcyl have signed an agreement to promote dual Vocational Training in Castilla y León.

The agreement was a result of the joint work that both entities have been developing for some time. Thanks to this agreement, the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, through its Dualiza Bankia brand, will provide training for dual vocational company advisors and will take part in informational workshops, while Feporcyl is committed to disseminating and promoting dual vocational training.

  • For the fourth consecutive year, the bank will be an Official Sponsor of one of the main events in the book industry in Spain.
  • The entity sponsors the ‘Bankia Cultural Activities Pavilion,’ which will host the Fair’s main events.
  • Bankia will provide visitors with an ‘ofibus’, mobile office that enables both visitors and exhibitors to carry out the usual bank transactions within the fairgrounds.

Bankia has signed an agreement with the Book Trade Association of Entrepreneurs of Madrid to sponsor the 78th Madrid Book Fair, which will take place between 31 May and 16 June in the Buen Retiro Gardens of the capital.

The bank will have the status of 'Official Sponsor' and, in addition, sponsors the 'Bankia Cultural Activities Pavilion', which will host the main events of the 2019 Book Fair.

Bankia’s Regional Corporate Manager in Madrid North, Juan Luis Vidal, and the director of the Book Fair, Manuel Gil, participated in the signing ceremony held at Bankia’s headquarters.

"Our support, for the fourth consecutive year, to the Madrid Book Fair, a reference in the book industry nationwide, shows Bankia's commitment to culture and to a highly important region to our bank", said Bankia’s Corporate Regional Director in Madrid North, Juan Luis Vidal.

This year the motto of the event is ‘A story with each step’ and the Dominican Republic is the guest country. The event will be attended most noteworthy booksellers, editors, distributors and authors, who have a decisive impact on the promotion of book distribution in our country. Support for the Madrid Book Fair is very consistent with Bankia’s policy of sponsorship of cultural projects.

For his part, the director of the Book Fair said he was grateful "for the support received to make a new edition possible”. He also applauded "the fact that an entity like Bankia has cultural promotion and ecological sustainability as part of its strategic pillars", he added. In this regard, it should be noted that the Madrid Book Fair has been certified as a carbon neutral event.

“Bankia’s ‘ofibus’ makes it possible for book sellers, editors, distributors, authors and the thousands of citizens who will visit El Retiro in the coming days to withdraw money comfortably without having to leave the Gardens,” stressed Vidal.

The agreement signed with the Madrid Association of Book Trade Entrepreneurs, which stipulates that members of the Association can access Bankia’s financial products under favourable terms, especially taking out insurance policies for professional activities and Point of Sales terminals (POS).
