The Onada Private Foundation is formed by a team of people working towards the same goal: finding new opportunities for people with disabilities and mental disorder. Its activities include gardening work, managing large municipal spaces and spaces for institutions, with what they manage to give work to their users.
One of its major projects is the Francolí park in Tarragona, a space that was almost abandoned. The Onada Private Foundation team has managed to recover this area for the residents, thanks to maintenance carried out by its users in gardening and revitalization of the park, valet parking, catering, leisure and cultural activities. The space has been radically transformed and has become a meeting place for people working in this social project and the residents, who now live in a much more direct and standardized way with the world of disability.
Through this initiative, people working in the park feel useful and motivated because they know they are providing added value for customers. They are responsible for everything being perfect and ready and endow their work with humanity and affection, with details like giving cookies and other craft products to people who come to the beach bar that the foundation has set up in the park. All add value to the project and everyone feels part of it.
