ALBA is the Spanish association to help of people with Albinism. Funded in 2005, it gathers people with Albinism and their families, along with professionals interested in this genetic condition. ALBA is moved by the desire for every person with albinism to grow up, study, work, and develop in a society free of intolerance and myths about this genetic condition. We cooperate with both public and private institutions, national or international. Knowing, sharing the people’s experiences, and overcoming adversity within a framework of social inclusion is our main objective.

Spanish entity 🇪🇸

Redtree Making Projects Coop. V. is a social cooperative active in the fields of education, training, and educational materials design by science and social affairs. Its aim is to help social and educational organizations to develop their framework and to improve the quality of their products through training, specific development plans, social studies, grant applications, legal advising, bureaucratic procedures, etc. We want to reach better educational levels and improve the employability and inclusion of students. We also have close relationships of cooperation and joint work with very diverse social and educational organizations, such as associations of people with special needs and their families, educational centers, foundations, etc. This joint work done over the years has led us to opening new specific work fields for students with special educational needs (SEN), mainly the design of inclusive educational projects as well as the creation of new materials and tools adapted to their needs. Redtree’s projects and areas of expertise are intersectorial, since we have been working mainly in 4 educational sectors: school education, professional training, adult education, and the training of young people through non-formal and informal education. This social cooperative has developed very diverse functions within these four educational sectors, ranging from the design of educational projects at the European level, of materials and educational tools, project quality control and monitoring, advisory and consulting functions, etc
