Fundación Cibervoluntarios

Fundación Cibervoluntarios (Cybervolunteers Foundation) is an atypical non-profit organization made up of social entrepreneurs whose vision is to use new technologies as a means for social innovation and citizen empowerment, alleviating social gaps by working to increase the rights, opportunities and capabilities of each person within their environment, through the social use of technological tools and applications within their reach.

To achieve this goal, the Foundation counts on cybervolunteers. Curious, proactive persons willing to learn, with a passion for sharing and enthusiasm about ICTs, who offer time and knowledge to teach other people the possibilities of the use of technology tools and applications to improve their lives in a simple and useful way. They do it through online and onsite courses, lectures, workshops and events, directing their action to groups of people that may be excluded from information society based on gender, age, professional and social environment, lack of time, knowledge, skills, motivation and/or material or economic resources.

In 2014, Fundación Cibervoluntarios received from the hands of the Prince and Princess of Asturias a recognition for creating new forms of participation and social innovation in support of groups at risk of exclusion. The organization was also recognized for being one of the 50 entities that are changing the world, and the only organization recognized with such merit in Spain.
