  • This summer’s initiative will benefit 726 people, 364 women and the 361 dependent people in their care

The minister of Equality and Social Policy, María José Sanchez Rubio; and the president of CajaGranada Foundation, María Elena Martín-Vivaldi; have signed an agreement in collaboration with Bankia to run cultural activities that will benefit more than 600 victims of gender violence and give them a safe, fun, instructive summer.

The agreement has been entered into with the Andalusian Women's Institute (IAM) whereby they will jointly run cultural activities at centres of the Integral Andalusian Service for Care and Shelter of Women who are Victims of Gender Violence. The corporate manager of Bankia in Andalusia, Joaquín Holgado, also took part in the event.

The agreement is part of the Vacacionantes programme, aimed at people sheltered by the network, and offers leisure activities that foster integration of these victims, particularly children, in the emotional, social and cultural lives of their new home cities. This summer’s initiative will help 726 people, 364 women and the 361 dependent people in their care.

By planning leisure and educational activities, Vacacionantes aims to boost victims’ self-esteem, strengthen mother-child bonds, and, above all, create a secure environment governed by respect and good conduct as a way of living together. The programme covers numerous activities and the collaboration with CajaGranada Foundation will make it possible to carry out joint cultural activities such as guided tours of museums, specific workshops and outdoor film screenings in Plaza de las Culturas at the Andalusian Cultural Memory Centre.

In 19 editions, more than 40,000 people have received cultural and social-educational care at the network of centres.

According to José Sánchez Rubio, the Vacacionantes programme is part of the Junta de Andalucia’s efforts to provide comprehensive care to young people exposed to gender violence, and to give them an opportunity to have “normal, safe holidays. This year, around 800 women will be included in this programme, which is extremely exciting for participants”.

According to the president of CajaGranada Foundation, María Elena Martín-Vivaldi, “this is one of the most important events of the year for us. I appreciate the presence and support of the representatives of the Junta who help us, and we are delighted to be here with Bankia. According to CajaGranada Foundation, the commitment to women's issues is irrevocable, even more so in this case, when supporting victims of gender-based violence and their children. This is a commitment that we will continue to honour in the future”.

In the meantime, Joaquín Holgado, area manager of Bankia in Andalusia, said that “an agreement like this one is proof of Bankia’s commitment to Granada and Andalusia and to society’s most vulnerable people”.
