What are the Days for Good?
The Days for Good are an opportunity for all Ferrer people to get involved in our purpose and its strategic pillars. This year, 2021, the event focuses on the pillar of Social Justice. We will wake up our activism once more to participate in volunteer activities linked to the four areas of action in our social strategy: employability, access to health, food and education.
Why does Ferrer organise the Days for Good?
The Days for Good 2021 are organised with the aim of communicating the social injustice strategy and involving Ferrer persons in this pillar through different volunteer activities.
