The Foundation’s Purpose
The Cellnex Foundation has been conceived as a dynamic tool to promote Cellnex‘s social commitment and to provide differential value through actions aimed at people and based on technological connectivity solutions, aligned with the company’s business model.
The Foundation’s efforts target people in different circumstances: individuals disconnected from the digital world -specially youth-, and in situations of vulnerability, such as people with disabilities and people with low employability.
We work to remove social inequalities, encourage functional and gender diversity, reduce territorial imbalances, and promote entrepreneurship and talent development.
We bring technology closer to people to promote effective connectivity to help reduce the digital, social and territorial divide.
We tackle imbalances and consequent social inequalities
We reduce, through connectivity, isolation and inequality in rural areas and complex urban environments
We address social, gender and functional diversity inequities by promoting connectivity solutions that improve people’s quality of life
We accompany and train young people at risk of school failure through a volunteer program that aims at reducing school dropout rates and increasing employability. After two editions in Spain, Youth Challenge is currently running in 4 countries.
After the success of the first edition, the Cellnex Bridge program has searched again for social impact startups that provide solutions to the double challenge of reducing the digital gap and contributing to environmental sustainability.
