Our Spanish member, Asociación Nueva Vida has joined forces with the Austral Sport textile company to create the project “Nueva Vida Textil”. It aims to help people at risk of exclusion – especially women survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation – through professional training and work opportunities.

The training for the beneficiaries will be given in a newly created workshop, enabled to fully protect both the identity and the integrity of women. The participants will be able to take introductory as well as advanced classes in industrial clothing. Later, they may be hired and become part of the “Nueva Vida Textil” team.

Nueva Vida has been undertaking great efforts to promote local and responsible business models through public-private partnerships, and to contribute to the socio-labour insertion of people in situations of extreme vulnerability, who face enormous difficulty to achieve stable and decent employment.
