The Private Foundation Lo que de verdad importa (LQDVI), a charity that promotes universal human values such as personal achievement, responsibility, respect or generosity. The goal is to teach young people from real cases of self-improvement, courage, solidarity and humanity, told first-hand from their protagonists.
The foundation, thanks to contributions from several private companies, including Solarpack, conducts activities aimed at educating and training young people and employees and developing international cooperation through volunteering in Africa.
The origin of LQDVI is based in the story of Nicholas Forstmann, American billionaire who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Forstmann began writing a diary reflecting what the important things in life are, and willing his children to read it when they grow up to make them think about what really matters in life.
The Lo que de verdad importa foundation make an annual congress, Congreso LQDVI, in some Spanish cities and, recently, in Europe and Latin America. Since 2007, participants can learn first-hand stories about self-improvement, tolerance, respect o solidarity from people such as William Rodriguez, 9/11 survivor, Pablo Pineda, first person with Down syndrome in achieving a Degree; Pedro Garcia Aguado, former water polo world champion; or Irene Villa, columnist who suffered a terrorist attack from ETA.
