A Coruña, 12/15/ 2022.-Northius, the leading company in the Training sector in Spain, has signed a partnership agreement with the NGO Aida Books&more. Northius and Aida Books&more will work together to collect and sell books. The profits will be invested in building a shelter for women who suffer from violence and abuse in Ashroy (India).
The company will organize a book drive among our students, faculty, and business teams. They will count on the support of 65,000 students, 1,000 staff members and teachers from 12 educational schools in all sectors. They will collect books that Aida Books&more will later sell to raise the funds needed to carry out the shelter project.
“At Northius we are deeply committed to equal opportunities and to promoting a more just, supportive and sustainable society”, explained Héctor Pérez, head of sustainability at Northius. Pérez also added “that is why this initiative, which we are conducting in-house, will be reflected in society with the building of a shelter for abused women in India”.
A cornerstone of Northius’ sustainable development strategy is the commitment to facilitate access to training and culture and to promote circular economy. “All of this will be achieved with this agreement,” stressed Pérez. “Both Northius and Aida Books&more share the ultimate goal of training people. That is why this cooperation agreement reflects the mission, values, and philosophy of both entities,” he recalled.
Aida Books&more is the first network of solidarity bookshops in Spain. Its mission is to collect all kinds of books and sell them at very low prices to help educate society by facilitating access to culture and education.
We are the result of a successful partnership of experienced educational institutions that share the same objective: the training and development of future professionals. Our aim is to impact society through quality training. We currently have 65,000 active students and more than 35,000 new enrolments yearly.
The group has more than 40 educational centers throughout the Iberian Peninsula. It also has a significant presence in other European countries (Belgium, Denmark, England, Ireland and the Netherlands) and Latin America (Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Panama, Uruguay, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico).
