The social reality and legal issues affecting vulnerable women are some of the Foundation’s greatest concerns. Our objective with this group is to give them real and efficient legal solutions that will give them a way out of their social exclusion or violent situations.
Our approach to achieving this objective is to develop pro bono legal projects and activities to raise lawyers’ awareness of the problems faced by vulnerable women.
Second Chance to vulnerable women
The Fernando Pombo Foundation has published a practical guide for the application of the Second Chance Law to vulnerable women and other at-risk groups.
The Foundation has identified this law as a legal resource for getting out of vulnerable situations where debts are the main barrier to moving forward.
The Guide is accessible and downloadable, cost-free, from the Fernando Pombo Foundation’s website: www.guia2oportunidad.org
Practical guide to the most frequently asked legal issues of victims of gender violence
It´s a pioneering tool in Spain for lawyers which aims at reinforcing the engagement and efficiency of the legal profession against gender violence.
The guide has been internationally recognized as finalist in the Annual European Pro Bono Award 2015 PILnet (The Global Network for Public Interest Law) for being innovative and social impacting.
