Who are we?

© Monteserín Fotografía

We are an NGO of the Society of Jesus that defends the right to education.

Through our projects, we promote access to quality education and equal opportunities in contexts of exclusion and vulnerability in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe.

We believe that guaranteeing the right to quality education is the means for change and social justice and a transversal axis in each of the 5 causes we defend: the right to education, migration and refuge, gender equity, socio-environmental justice and citizen participation.

For Entreculturas it is fundamental that all our actions generate equal opportunities and are responsible and transparent with all the people who support us.

Ícono de corazón


We work for social change and the promotion of justice in our world through personal and community transformation. We are convinced that education and participation are powerful instruments for this purpose and, in this direction, we work in alliance with the main networks of the Society of Jesus in contexts of exclusion (Jesuit Refugee Service, Fe y Alegría and Social Centers) as well as with various coalitions and platforms of civil society with which we share the same purpose.

Ícono de corazón


We promote a transformative, quality education model, with an innovative proposal that builds global citizenship and provides answers to the challenges posed by the new frontiers of exclusion.

We defend the dignified life and rights of people in a situation of forced mobility.

We are committed to socio-environmental justice, to sustainable and supportive lifestyles, both personal and institutional.

We work to place global citizenship on the educational, political and social agenda.

All of this is based on a firm commitment to guarantee gender equity and equal opportunities regardless of any personal or social condition or circumstance.

Ícono de corazón


Our identity is grounded in human rights and rooted in the Jesuit mission that promotes solidarity and justice. We therefore aspire to a courageous, committed and coherent response that has at its core the dignification and reconciliation of people and nature.
