TRH the Prince and Princess of Asturias (and Girona) have spent the past two days in Girona, attending different events  from the Prince of Girona Foundation. 

The Prince of Girona Foundation(the link can be found on the sidebard) has the Prince of Asturias and Girona as honorary president, and was born with a twofold mission: to provide support and training to young people and to assist in the resolution of the social problems of our area. The Foundation focuses its action and projects on four spheres: the social and cooperation area, the scientific and academic area, the business area, and the cultural and sports area. 

The Prince of Girona Foundation was constituted on 26 June 2009 as a response of the Spanish Royal Household to the initiative of the Girona Chamber of Commerce, Caixa Girona, the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation and “la Caixa” to establish a foundation with the main mission of promoting the education and training of youth and of attending to social issues.

On June 21 the Patronage of the Foundation held its fourth meeting in Girona. TRH the Prince and Princess presided over it.
