Collaborate with the Nit d’Ared, the most magical night of the Ared Foundation

The Nit d’Ared is already underway for all those who want to collaborate with the most magical night of the organisation.

This year, the Nit d’Ared will be held on 28 September at 8 pm in the old penitentiary centre, La Model.

With your collaboration you will make the Nit d’Ared an evening to celebrate that the social and labour insertion of people in vulnerable situations is possible!

The Night of Ared is a gastronomic tasting, organised by Catering Ared, in collaboration with renowned Catalan gastronomy professionals.

This emblematic night will be hosted by Elisenda Roca and with the participation of Faustino Garcia Zapico and Begoña Longoria, promoters of the alternative model of educational intervention in the penitentiary context, which makes the phrase “another prison is possible” a reality.

All the proceeds from the Ared Night will go to the people at risk of social exclusion that we attend to, to guarantee the support programmes that we carry out in the organisation.

The Ared Foundation is a non-profit organisation that accompanies people at high risk of vulnerability, mostly women who come from prisons or social services, so that they can achieve full integration into society. They do this by promoting their autonomy, through training and comprehensive accompaniment, which enables their incorporation into the labour market.

The Ared Foundation was founded in 1994 in the women’s penitentiary centre of Barcelona (Wad Ras) as an initiative of Teresa Rodríguez, founder and president of the foundation until 2018, and five dons deprived of their liberty and students of a dressmaking course, with the aim of offering them training and a new opportunity in life. 28 years later, Fundación Ared has helped more than 12,000 people, 3,500 of whom have found work in the city of Barcelona and its metropolitan area.
