Marbella, 15 July 2016. Yet again Fuerte El Rompido (Huelva) has shown its desire to collaborate in a major social project in the province in which it is located. The ‘Aprender Trabajando’ programme is an initiative organised by the Spanish Red Cross and the Gypsy Secretariat Foundation, in collaboration with Obra Social “La Caixa”, the main objective of which is to promote the integration of vulnerable groups in the workplace. On this occasion, the 15 participants in the programme received training in skills relating to the essential departments of a hotel: maintenance, kitchen, restaurant, reception, housekeeping, entertainment and spa. Following their internship, which has lasted 6 weeks, students ended their time at the hotel with a Closing Ceremony held last week, as part of which the corresponding diplomas were awarded.
In the words of Tomeu Roig, Director of Fuerte El Rompido, “we are very proud to have been able to participate once again in this interesting initiative, thanks to which youth people aged between 18 and 30 will be able to find work and become involved in the tourism sector, which is such an important industry in our country”. To this end, he added, “we’re even more delighted about the fact that 5 of the students from the course will take up positions with us”.

That is why the Group’s hotels offer the most traditional features of each region, thus allowing guests to experience local culture. Additionally, they implement a range of development programmes and cultural projects that serve as a catalyst to the local economy. Furthermore, via Fundación Fuerte, they help to improve the quality of life of those with special needs.
