Results

We are more than happy for the outcome of this project. We had 4 teams of young people who participated in the ImpactSBD!

Some of the projects that had been created in the impactSBD! are now becoming reality and their creators are now juniors of our LOM, one of them even asked to become deputy.

We are very thankful to JCI Barcelona members, Jordi Trunas and Marina Sala, who facilitated the Finance Trainings

Local government funded a part of this project, and they even asked us to repeat it in the following years.
