Dedication, generosity and superpowers at the service of others

Dedication, generosity and superpowers at the service of others Dedication, generosity and superpowers at the service of others

Our Superhéroes de Barrio can make the dreams of people who are suffering come true through the use of their superpowers. With their determination they can defeat almost impossible obstacles, with their dedication and unwavering generosity, they deal with major challenges on a daily basis in order to make the people happy who need it most.

At Sé Solidario we support people who spearhead initiatives to improve the lives of others, be they acquaintances or strangers, wherever they come from, and without expecting anything in return. Our superheroes are happy to hear the laughter of disabled children, to enjoy the company of elderly people and to receive the affection of those who have been forgotten about.

Our Superhéroes de Barrio have a name and a face. We want to introduce you to them.

Fundación Nido

Creating a magical connection with children with cerebral palsy.

Imagine that the only way of communicating with your child, or your sister, or with someone you love, is with a look, a gesture or a smile. At Fundación NIDO they know full well that connection and communication is not based on words alone. These people, from 3 to 52 years old, who go to their school or day center, or the 16 people living in their residence, know this too.

Asociación Altamar

How to mentally overcome the barriers of exclusion and crime.

Many families that are cared for at Altamar have one or several members of their family in prison or living with drug dependency issues. This center, which works with families living in social exclusion in the El Perchel and La Trinidad neighborhoods in Malaga, seeks to ensure that children escape the cycle of poverty and delinquency. Victoria Marín, known to everyone as Peque, has been the center's director since 2005.

Fundación Horizontes Abiertos

Providing companionship and affection to people who have been forgotten about.

“Having a home and someone that loves you can make all the difference between being on the margins of society or not”. These words from María, the co-founder of this foundation together with Father Garralda, are at the heart of the work that the workers and volunteers at Horizontes Abiertos carry out on a daily basis. Their contribution is to be present, to listen, to accompany the person in silence and to look into the eyes of people who believe they have lost everything.

Fundación Lukas

Looking at people with disabilities in a different way.

It is no small feat to have 6 adults with multiple severe disabilities living together in supervised accommodation. However, Fundación Lukas, created by Anne Marie and a group of friends who backed her idea, has managed to achieve this. The goal of this Dutch woman who has settled in Spain is to get society to see people with disabilities in a different way, or simply, to see them and accept that they are here.

Fundación grandes amigos

Combating loneliness.

Flowers before bread is the motto of Mercedes, who was responsible for creating the Grandes Amigos initiative. The goal of this Foundation is to offer companionship and affection to lonely people, above all the elderly, for whom receiving care and attention is more of a priority to them than having their basic needs met. Today, 850 of the Foundation's volunteers visit elderly people living alone and establish a friendly and affectionate relationship with them.
