Conocí a Amaqtedu casi por casualidad, pero ha sido la mejor de las casualidades.
Amaqtedu (Ama hasta que te duela) es una asociación que busca la reinserción laboral de personas sin hogar a través del arte. Desde pequeña, siempre me ha encantado el arte y cuando conocí esta iniciativa tan bonita y a las personas que había detrás, pensé que tendría que ayudar en esto de alguna forma.
I had already heard of AMAQTEDU before, but it wasn’t until the time of the first lockdown in 2020 that I really got to know what it was all about. Javi, the founder, was giving a talk in a webinar and I was left wanting to know more about this social and artistic project, so I immediately reached out to him.

I got to know the founders at their faculty in the University of Alcalá, in Madrid, where they organized a “volunteering day”. Maybe you will wonder how it all started: AMAQTEDU was born in the heart & mind of two young students that participated in a competition. The challenge was to create a business, but they instead won it with an extraordinary social project. Their conviction and passion immediately got me onboard with their vision.
