ACTIVITIES & LEISURES

A vital part of what we do at Galehi is the organization of cultural, recreational, educational and training activities. In this way, we foster relationships between families, especially when they are most dispersed, and we create meeting opportunities to share common concerns about parenting and support each other.

Every month we carry out different leisure activity and, twice a year, our families spend a weekend together, each time in a different place in Spain.

ACTIVISM AND POLITICS

Homoparental families have existed forever but only a few years ago we have been legally recognized, and we have achieved some equality rights thanks to the modification of existing laws and the enactment of new ones.

The government is the organisms with the capacity to issue or modify such laws, and will only do so when it considers that there is an evident injustice or a social demand to justify these changes.

At Galehi we work to:
  • Communicate to the goverment (state, province or local) our demand for family diversity.
  • Become advisory elements in the drafting of laws that directly or indirectly affect family diversity.
  • Build, promote and strengthen mechanisms and relationships with political, government and opposition representatives.
With the objectives of:
  • Collect the legislative needs of all our families.
  • Eliminate the discriminations regarding the hegemonic model.
  • Get consideration of homoparental families in all forums.

RELATION WITH OTHER ASSOCIATIONS

Just as partnering empowers people in the fight for their rights, the partnership that advocates for similar rights makes us stronger and helps us achieve our goals.

Thanks to these contacts we have managed to put freedom of movement for homoparental families on the European political calendar and the homologation of certificates and documents that establish parental and marital relations.

Galehi currently belongs to:

EDUCATION & PROJECTS

Education in family and affective-sexual diversity is a fundamental tool to fight homophobia in society and in educational centers.

At Galehi, we offer these workshops, in collaboration with teachers from all educational levels, to help create a safer space for children and adolescents.

In addition, as an educational center you can be part of the projects we have underway:

Escuelas Diversas is an educational project that consists of creating a quality seal for nurseries, schools or institutions that want to certify that they are centers that educate on family diversity, sexual and gender identity.

All the personnel involved in the project will be trained and provided with materials: teaching staff, student body, families and school parent associations.

Biblioteca de colores
Biblioteca de Colores is an educational project that consists of sending a batch of books to the interested educational centers. These books are divided into different education levels from 0-3 years old up to high school, and they are related to family diversity.

This project helps us to create a more respectful and inclusive world where, with our differences, we feel that we are part of it in equal treatment.
