For the second consecutive year we are presenting the Second Fair with the European Anti Poverty Network (EAPN). EAPN is an umbrella organization that gathers by 50 organizations that acts on a national and regional level, all of them non-profit and with a common goal: to fight against poverty and social exclusion. Last year, more than a thousand visitors form different civil sectors had the chance to visit the hub of the fair.
During their visit to Progestión’s stand, prominent politicians and institutional representatives could discuss with our team about what concerns our community and for future collaboration.
