Today, Queen Letizia of Spain, the honorary president of the “Help Against Drug Addiction Foundation”, presided over the meeting of her Board of Trustees, held at the Repsol headquarters in Madrid.
The Foundation for Assistance against Drug Addiction is a private, non-profit, non-denominational institution established with the objective to prevent drug consumption and other risky behaviours that hinder the personal and social development of adolescents.
Created in 1986 on the initiative of Manuel Gutiérrez Mellado – president of the institution until his death in 1995 – with the support of companies, institutions and professionals, the FAD develops its activities in collaboration with other civil society organizations that understand that the problems of drugs require a solitary response, which must be articulated mainly from the field of prevention. Her Majesty the Queen is the honorary president of this institution since 2015, a role she took over from her Mother-in-Law Queen Sofia.
Fad works in Latin America, especially in Central America, since 1995. Since then, more than 150 Development Cooperation projects have been developed in collaboration with different entities in 11 different countries – in addition to Education for Development projects in Spain – and reaching more than one and a half million beneficiaries.
The projects in this area of the Fad are aimed at improving the employability and educational levels of Latin American youth; prevent the social risks they must face, such as drug consumption or youth violence; promote the culture of peace and promote global citizenship.
The meeting began with the presentation of the Economic Report and the Action Plan for the financial year 2019, Her Majesty the Queen was informed about the new social awareness campaign that, for the first time in the history of FAD, will be developed exclusively in the field digital and will directly address young people.
Also, the project of the program (In) fórmate, a program of Fad in collaboration with Google and many other communication platforms, which aims to reach 30,000 adolescents from 14 to 16 years in order to promote them in the next two years, was addressed.
