RANA Foundation

RANA (Red de Ayuda a Niños Abusados) is a non-profit foundation in the Balearic Islands, whose social function is to prevent mistreatment and sexual abuse of children, through awareness-raising activities, education and networking. Prevention of sexual abuse begins with citizen knowledge and information. If this problem still persists in our society, it is due to silence. We believe that a fundamental step to break this silence are awareness campaigns, the training of professionals and adults responsible for protecting children, and prevention programs.
