Transportes F. Ramos with the AFIM Foundation


For years, in Transportes F. Ramos we are aware of the ethical, social and environmental development. We perform a responsible management of resources, selecting the most efficient technologies and maintain a corporate philosophy based on social values. We believe that the value contributed to society through our economic activity is not enough. Companies are key players in the development of society and we must make our commitment to people latent.


An example of this is our collaboration with AFIM, a non-profit foundation with the mission of helping, training and integrating people with some kind of disability, whether physical, intellectual or sensory. AFIM has been supporting young and elderly people with disabilities in standardization, job training and social integration for more than 20 years.

In Transportes F. Ramos we have collaborated with AFIM Foundation through economic donations for many years, since it seems to us a great initiative to help this type of groups. We must be aware that people with disabilities are a group with a greater risk of social exclusion, however, they are equally valid and should have the same opportunities as other people.

1/3 of people with disabilities are at risk of poverty or social exclusion

According to Observatorio de Discapacidad Física, disabled people over the age of 16 are most at risk of poverty or social exclusion, both in Spain and in the European Union. In fact, 1 out of 3 people with disabilities is at risk of social exclusion. Fortunately, this situation is greatly reduced after social transfers, which highlights the importance of benefits, pensions and charitable foundations.

Some interesting facts:

  • One of the main challenges for families with children with disabilities is the economic difficulty
  • Only 26% of the disabled have a job.
  • Social benefits have been drastically reduced in recent years.

In this context, the AFIM Foundation is launching a series of activities aimed at people with disabilities, such as cognitive stimulation programs, inclusion workshops, pre-employment workshops, a direct care service or a training fellowship program, among others.
