In recent decades, the immigrant and refugee population has experienced a notable increase in Spain. In the case of immigrants, their number increased from a total of 4,144,166 foreigners in 2006 to 5,036,878 people in 2019, an increase of more than eight hundred thousand people. In this scenario, NGOs have become a powerful actor in the field of care for migrants and refugees in Spain, as in other European countries.
But, in addition to NGOs, there are various associations, women’s groups that provide support in different areas: job search, networking, food, leisure, culture and other aspects that are relevant to a person’s life.
In Spain and in the Valencian Community there are many NGOs, associations and support groups working with migrant women. NGOs and associations receive public and private funding to be able to carry out different programmes, projects and actions focused on assisting, supporting, guiding and helping the migrant population.
Many of these entities have long experience working with diverse groups. They have worked both in the countries of origin and in Spain. Many of these entities are based in Spain and other countries. They also have offices in various parts of the world. This means that these organisations and associations have consolidated their work and their support for people.
Although the list of entities is long, we have made a selection of the main organisations and we will explain a few details: contact information, logo, brief description of the entity and other relevant details.
The organisation has more than 30 years of experience working on a variety of issues worldwide. They currently focus their work on: women’s rights, climate justice and sustainability, global citizenship and migration, and emergency and disaster response.
