Queen Letizia of Spain, the Honorary President of the FAD Youth Foundation, presided over the board meeting of the FAD Youth Foundation at the headquarters of the Bank of Spain.
The FAD Youth Foundation is a private, non-profit, non-denominational, and independent institution endowed with consultative status with category II before the Economic and Social of the United Nations. The FAD’s fundamental mission is the prevention of drug use and other risk behaviors that prevent or hinder the personal and social development of adolescents.
Established in 1986 at 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 supportive response, which must be articulated mainly from the field of prevention.
Queen Letizia took over the presidency of the foundation from her mother-in-law Queen Sofia in 2015. FAD Juventud has been working 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 Development Education projects in Spain- and reaching more than a million and a half beneficiaries.
For the day, Queen Letizia chose a chic monochrome look.
