Transformando is a non-profit social cooperative founded in 1998. We strive to enable socially-excluded individuals to successfully integrate society and the workplace. We provide and promote the use of tools required to set up businesses that will generate incomes, encourage self-employment, increasepeoples's concern and participation in their surrounding environments through associations. We also support third sector entities by helping them to better manage thier organizations at an internal level as well as the completion of intervention project in Spain and impoverished countries. TF counts with a large experience in training and advising people at risk of exclusion in their process of business creation. Most of our beneficiaries have been migrants. The relevant experience for this partership is the one coming from the areas of work: Micro-companies and social economy entities, Microfinance and financial education and Consultancy and trainig services offered to non-profit entities. In the area of micro-companies, we design and provide complete self-employment progrmas aimed at groups of population suffering from exclusion at a social and work level. These include contents, modules and a methodology specifically designed to adapt to the needs of these individuals. We do training, mentoring and train trainers. In 2007, we were awarded a secnd proze by the Ministry of Education and Science for the quality of our "Lacer" project focusing on methods of training and counsaltancy services adapted to immigrants provided to promote the creation of businesses within the Leonardo Da Vinci program (2003-2006). In 2008 we develop a method for teaching transversally entrepreneurship in secondary schools of the Braque cuontry (Region of North of Spain). In 2008-2009 we create a business launcher a platform to give support to migrants willing to create their business. The launcher has been recognizedas a good practice in various European pubblications. In the area of Microfinance and financial education: we enable unprivileged groups of population to access souerces of funding and also teach them to use money available appropriately when making decisions related to low-scale matters. We participated in the ABACO project ("Adult Basic Accountng and Control of Overindebtedness"): www.abaco-project.eu.
