Tras el éxito de la campaña Por un@ más, realizada por Worldcoo en abril de 2013, os compartimos el informe oficial de su seguimiento para que todos los donantes puedan ver su evolución.   El objetivo del proyecto  era conseguir los fondos necesarios para que un estudiante proveniente de algún país empobrecido o en situación de conflicto, pudiera impartir el Máster Internacional sobre Paz, Conflictos y Estudios de desarrollo de la Universidad Jaume I,  impartido en la localidad de Castellón. La idea de la campaña surgió de los mismos estudiantes a raíz de la cancelación de todas las subvenciones  públicas para la concesión de este tipo de becas.

 Raúl Montes Osorio,  fue el joven  afortunado que recibió  la beca gracias a la financiación conseguida por toda la comunidad @Worldcoo. Se recaudaron un total de  5340€  en 5 semanas, con 146 donantes . Según el informe, los resultados del primer año han sido más que satisfactorios, tanto en aspectos académicos como de integración del estudiante en la comunidad. Este último año, a parte de cursar los últimos 60 créditos del Máster, Raúl defenderá su Trabajo Final de Máster con Orientación Profesional  públicamente ante un tribunal constituido a tal efecto, que evaluará la calidad del trabajo y decidirá si es apto para la obtención del título de Máster, objetivo final que certifica la formación recibida.

¡Te deseamos la máxima suerte Raúl en este curso que ahora empiezas!

Children’s Diner Scholarship Program of Aldeas Infantiles SOS

This month, the cause has been chosen as the Children’s Diner Scholarship Program. This entity provides soup kitchens in different Spanish cities, where many families frequent due to situations like evictions, unemployment and a lack of economic income. These prevention programs do their best to help these families, guiding them so they can find work and aiding in the care of their children. But increasingly, these families need help to cover the basic essentials: food, clothing and school supplies needs. This year the entity has encountered 542 children with a particularly urgent need for basic meals, therefore, this new scholarship program has been inniciated, so that children can stay and eat in their respective schools, allowing them to maintain a normal life.
This video summarizes the action and mission of SOS Children, a private, non profit international organization, which helps children and was founded in 1949 in Imst (Austria) and is now has activities in 133 countries.


LetsBonus Act Program
The program ‘Acts LetsBonus’ supports the more real and closer problems to heart in our day to day lives. To date, the NGO Friends of the biggest, Adsis Foundation, AccióNatura, the Federation of Autism Madrid have been the beneficiaries of the solidarity of its members. Worldcoo has been involved in the selection and auditing of projects submitted, ensuring compliance and traceability of donations received.

#Newsponsor & #Newproject: redcoon.es & School Lunchroom Program

It is September and our special “Back to school” comes with a new sponsor redcoon.es and a new project Educo.org: School Lunchroom Program which is to raise money to fund dining rooms for less established schools, in areas of need,  throughout Spain.
Startling data indicates that every three minutes in Spain, a child falls into the risk of poverty. 1 out of every 4 children (200.000) is malnourished and does not receive even one balanced meal a day.
Educo.org focuses its activity on children and their right to receive a qualified education. The School Lunchroom Program has identified the most vulnerable families in Spain who have difficulties providing their children with a proper diet and who are not eligible for government lunchroom subsidies.
redcoon.es and its users, an online specialist company dedicated to online sales of appliances, photography, electronics and computers will be supporting the cause and donating 1 euro for every purchase made on their website. The program will help children from more than 20 schools across Spain. With 3.500 € of funding, Educo will be able to provide  1400 meals that will benefit lots of children and their families.
Thanks for joining the Worldcoo community and welcome. Redcoon.es joins the list of socially responsible e-commerce’s that bind our commitment to generate more of a positive social impact  together. For this, we are proud of them!

Human Development Report for 2014- 16 countries with gender equality

  • In only 16 countries are the levels of human development of women equal to or superior to those of men, according to the new Gender Development Index, 2014.
  • Despite this slight improvement, overall, the Human Development Index is still 8% lower for women

 women-149577_640

The latest Human Development Report  in 2014, was published by the United Nations Program for Development (UNDP) and calculated for the first time, the level of human development distinguished between men and women in 148 countries by presenting the content for Gender Inequality.

Overall, it shows a slight decrease in the inequality of women. However, despite improvements in the field of health and a gradual increase in education and parliamentary representation, empowerment of women continues to lag. Thus, the United States, took a surprising 47 in the ranking of gender inequality. For example, women in the United States occupy only 18% of parliamentary seats, compared to 38% in the Netherlands and 45% in Sweden.

The 16 countries with greater gender equality  are:

Argentina, Barbados, Belarus, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Mongolia, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine and Uruguay are the 16 countries where the HDI values ​​for women are equal to or higher than those of men. In some of these countries, this is attributed to higher educational attainment of women; in others, life expectancy in women is higher (at least more than five years). Slovenia holds the best position, while Yemen has the most unequal percentage in relation to gender.

Income inequality is increasing

Overall, the Gender Development Index for women is 8 percent lower than that of men, and the disparity of gross national income per capita is still very high: at a global level, men earn more than twice that of women.

The income inequality has increased in several regions, also among the countries with high human development. Latin America and the Caribbean remain the highest points in the world in terms of income inequality. The IDHD,  which was calculated throughout 145 countries, shows that the lowest levels of inequality were found in Norway, Finland and the Czech Republic.

 

  The Human Development Index

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a complex measure to compare countries in terms of international parity in health, education and income. This was introduced in the first Human Development Report  of 1990 as a measure of development put into doubt purely economic assessments of national progress. HDI Report 2014 covers 187 countries and territories. Last year, the HDI could not be calculated for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the Marshall Islands, Monaco, Nauru, San Marino , Somalia, South Sudan and Tuval.

Despite the global achievements in terms of human development in all regions of the growth rate, the HDI was lower in the period between 2008 and 2013, compared with the years 2000-2008, according to the same report. By country, the steepest declines in the values ​​of the HDI this year occurred in the Central African Republic, Libya and Syria, where ongoing conflicts led to a reduction in income.

Entitled Holding Human Progress: Reduce vulnerabilities and build resilience, the report provides a new perspective on vulnerability and proposes new ways to foster resilience. “Addressing vulnerabilities will allow everybody to participate in the progress of development, thereby ensuring that human development is becoming more equal and sustainable,” Helen Clark, a UNDP Administrator said. The report urges governments to recommit themselves to the goal of full employment. In this sense, she argues that full employment produces social dividends that go far beyond the individual benefits by promoting stability and social cohesion.

  1,500 million people, from 91 developing countries, live in a situation of multidimensional poverty

According to research 1,200 million people live on $ 1.25 a day or less. However, the latest estimates from the Multidimensional Poverty Index UNDP reveal that nearly 1,500 million people in 91 developing countries, live in a situation of multidimensional poverty, with concurring deficits in health, education and living standards. Although overall poverty is declining, nearly 800 million people are at risk of falling back into it because of a crisis or adversity.

The UNDP and other like-minded charities and Worldcoo have a considerable task ahead of them to reduce this gap and work for the  Human Development itself.
