10 years of the SHE Foundation

The SHE Foundation – “la Caixa” Foundation celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2020. Several commemorative events were planned for this anniversary, but the coronavirus forced them to be postponed. In spite of the delay caused by the pandemic, the SHE Foundation-“la Caixa” Foundation has still gone ahead with the planned activities.


10th Anniversary activities 



To celebrate these 10 years, a school competition has been organised among the schools that form part of the SI! Programme in Barcelona, Madrid and Ourense. The aim of this competition is to put the acquired knowledge into practice and to awaken creativity to instil healthy habits in a playful way, recognising the great educational work of the teachers. The contest consists of each centre sending stories with drawings and illustrations, videos, texts with images or healthy recipes depending on each of the different age levels of the participants. The competition includes a prize-giving ceremony at the Madrid Planetarium.
