ALBOAN is the international cooperation NGO of the Jesuits in the Basque Country and Navarre regions. Along with many people excluded by the system in which we live, ALBOAN works at building a global citizenship to denounce the injustices that cause inequality in the world, to build a culture that promotes the common good and to transform structures that generate poverty at the local and global level.
