Belinda, Kobi and Lydia are our first success story

Worldcoo is extremely pleased to report that we have completed our first project!

This project was focusing on three children, Belinda and Kobi, from Ghana, and Lydia from Nigeria. They spent the summer integrating within a Catalan family, being immersed into a different atmosphere, experiencing the culture that Catalunya has to offer and forming ties with another family.

We are thrilled to express that the children thoroughly enjoyed their time here and the bonds they made with their Catalan families were a joy to see. They have now made the safe journey back to their countries where they were overjoyed to find cases that their Catalan families made, containing clothes, food and sweets! The NGO and the families are still involved and will take care of their development, schooling, and their health through financial support and scholarships.

We would like to thank all that were involved within this project and we are looking forward to making our next project as successful!

A warm welcome at the airport

Last week, the three children from Ghana and Nigeria : Lydia, Kobi, and Belinda, arrived at Manresa in Catalonia.

They are now starting a stay of 6 weeks, immersed in a familly and in the european culture. On the picture, you can see the tenderness of the families, which are very happy to host them, and happy to spend a special summer with children from impoverished countries. By the way, they will receive medical care that they don’t have in their originary country.

Worldcoo is proud to share those pictures with you, we believe that this is the best reward we can give to our donors. Transparency is the main aspect we want to show in order to initiate confidence.

 

[Funded] Plane tickets and visas for three children to spend the summer in Catalonia

We are glad to announce you that the project is now completely funded! Thanks to our very generous donors and to our sponsor Jomar Consulting, we reached the goal almost one month before the deadline.

To recap, this campaign aims to make possible that 3 children from Ghana and Nigeria, Lydia, Kobi and Belinda, can spend one summer with a catalan family. It consists on a month and a half stay in a familiar atmosphere, enjoying coexistence and creating and special tie with the hosting family. Moreover, this stay makes it possible for them to receive a healthy feeding, an adequate medical care and also a special motivation for them during the year in Africa to be good students and then culminate the year with their stay in Catalonia.

As the families will host them for free, the funds are dedicated to the plane tickets and the visas. Again, thank you very much for all the people that donated to the project and all the ones who will make it possible.

We will keep you posted soon to explain how the project will be organized.

Summer is coming, what are you waiting?

The three children from our project Summer hosting for children from Ghana and Nigeria haven’t reached a third of the goal yet.

Just to recall the objective, the project has a main aim to make possible that children coming from orphanages and other institutions in Ghana and Nigeria can spend one summer with a Catalan family.This project consist on a month and a half stay in a familiar atmosphere, enjoying coexistence and creating a special tie with the hosting family.

Moreover, this stay makes it possible for them to receive a healthy feeding, an adequate medical care and also a special motivation for them during the year in Africa to be good student and then culminate the year with their stay in Catalonia.

The only thing that is still missing to lead this project to the success is the money to buy visas and plane tickets for these children. Otherwise, all their stay in Spain is already managed, and families are hosting them for free.

They need your help, share the cause with your community, and make a donation to illuminate the life of three children!

A little NGO with a huge heart

Sunrise Africa is a micro-ONG which aim to help 32 Ghanaian boys and girls to shape their own future, their life, and their hope.

Even if this NGO is not that big, they have a huge aim. They want to offer these children these opportunity to give them ambition. Everybody on earth is capable to do great things. So if you provide the rights tools to a child, his future will be sustainably better. Without help, these children will not be able to develop their potential, and they have!

Sunrise Africa cover all children’s needs as regards food, health, education, clothing, and care (by enabling them to spend more time with their families as well as through the Summer Hosting Scheme). They also provide assistance to the children’s families by way of arranging for medical assistance, and arrange a micro loan to enable them to lead a decent life.

According to Sunrise “The objective is that it be through THEIR EFFORTS that they shape THEIR FUTURE. THEIR EFFORTS combined with our assistance; but they will have to put in their share.”

We agree over 100% with that, and you? Support the project on Worldcoo!
