Miquel and Mireia visit the NGO S.A.U.C.E in Cambodia

capcelera_ENG

“Education in Battamang is the best motivation and recognition for people with difficulties”.

alumnosOne month ago, Mireia and Miquel started a new adventure in which they will visit so many countries in which our ecommerce with a cause have funded some project in order to improve the social and environmental situations.

Their first stop has been in Cambodia, where they have had the opportunity to visit the NGO S.A.U.C.E, an entity that was born in 2001 in order to help people at risk of social exclusion in Cambodia, one country that still today is victim of the sequels of a genocide in which two million people died.

Among the most affected are children, who still today face problems such as malnutrition, abuse, exploitation, anti-personnel mines or difficulties in accessing school, especially in rural areas.  In front of this situation, the education is considered a key aspect for the country and this is one of the S.A.U.C.E priorities.

In this post, we talk with Miquel and Mireia about their experience in Battambgang, where the Foundation is located.


Miquel, Mireia, how would you describe the area where S.A.U.C.E is located?

The Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang is the organization with which S.A.U.C.E collaborates. Battambang is a good reflection of Cambodia, a mostly rural country with an economy based on agriculture and very young population; who almost don’t have access to education and are dedicated to work in the field.

This situation is a legacy of one of the most important genocides of humanity that struck Cambodia between 1975 and 1979 and the war that occurred just after that. This genocide became fierce with the country’s intellectuals, killing, in the case of education, up to 80% of teachers and in the case of health, only left five physicians alive throughout the country. This situation paralyzed almost all country and the education hasn’t recovered yet.

The Prefecture concentrates its efforts on education and on disabled persons, and its scope is remote and very isolated rural areas.

What was your first impression when you arrive there?

Our first impression when we arrive at the Prefecture was grandiosity, because of the dimension of the enclosure and the serenity for the peace that there was in the atmosphere.  Apart from the church and the house of the parish priests, there’s a medical center, a guest house, a house for the volunteers, two shelters, a day care center and the Karuna Computer Center.

During the day, all the movement of the kids, workers and volunteers was constant; everyone had a clear objective.  There is nothing more motivating than knowing the goal, the reason of your day to day. This was our first and last impression of Battambang Prefecture.

collage_educació

How would you describe people who lives in Battambang?

Most of people who there are dedicated to agriculture, with almost no education. Population lives in remote areas near the fields.

There is also a very large group of people with physical disabilities. Throughout the above-mentioned conflict along with the aftermath of the Vietnam War, there was a widespread outbreak of polio and many mutilations by anti-personnel mines, one of the leading causes of death in the country still to this day.

Among other projects, you have visited the educational “Karuna Computer Center”, where people have education about computer and technology. How are them?

The main aim of the Karuna Computer Center is facilitate the education to people with different ages who live in remote areas and with difficult access to school, and kid with physical disabilities. Because of that, classes are done in the evenings, so people can combine school with work.

In addition to computer training, in the center there are also three classrooms for English training and the repair of computer equipment.

Why is so important promote and boost their education?

First of all, education is a basic tool to access to labor world. However, it is also a good source of motivation and recognition for those with more difficulties.

Apart of this, what kind of other project have you visited?

The Prefecture works on 4 major pillars in which it divides multiple projects:

  • Education, which includes the construction and support of schools in remote areas or support to the most disadvantaged families.
  • Care for the group of people with disabilities.
  • Shelters for children who are vulnerable or disabled.
  • Social enterprises in which people with difficulties are employed and trained for future integration into the labor market.

From here, thousands of miles away, what do you think we could do to contribute our bit?

Obviously, one of the most important legs to continue the work, is the collection and the economic support. However, we believe that there are other forms also important to contribute as the work of communication and dissemination. In this way, it is made known the reality of other places in the world and allows to generate greater awareness.

#CompromisoMascoteros, the first social program of Mascoteros

 

capcelera_eng

We introduce you our first ecommerce with cause dedicated to pets!

mascoteros_900They are Mascoteros, the first Spanish marketplace related to the world of pets.  If you didn’t know them you will now have opportunity to do it, because they just have joined to Worldcoo community with their new initiative #MascoterosCommitment.

Though this new initiative, they will offer their customers the opportunity to add done, two or five euros to each purchase they do and contribute to the defense of animal rights, one of its main commitments.

logo-dainaIn their first challenge, they will help Conan and three more dogs who, like him, live in one of the refuges of the Fundation for the Defense of Animals and Nature, an entity created by the Animal Protection Society of Mataró (spAm).

When Conan arrived at the Foundation, more than 10 years ago, he had clear signs of neglect and he was quite thin. After different therapies, Conan is now a loving and obedient dog, fully prepared to find a new home.

The total amount collected by Mascoteros users will go to “Great animals for great people” program, and with it, the Foundation will  guarantee the life support and veterinary care of Conan and three other older dogs found. Something that will undoubtedly promote its adoption.

Demis Torres, CEO of Mascoteros tells us that “the agreement with Worldcoo allows us to take a step forward in the defense and promotion of animal rights. There are many entities that today do not have the necessary resources to ensure the maintenance and veterinary treatment of the animals they welcome and we are so happy to be able to contribute through our community and in the long term.

The project was launched this morning and the donations were not long in coming! If you want, you can follow the donation process live HERE.

New Worldcoo Ambassadors!

capcelera_ENG

IMG-20170420-WA0015 - copiaSome days ago we received an e-mail from Miquel and Mireia, a young couple who in a few days were going to start a long journey that would take them around the world. They had heard about us and they asked us if they could participate in some of the projects we help to fund in some of the different countries they would visit in the next weeks.

When we talked them about our Worldcoo Ambassadirs Program and proposed them to join it, they accepted instantly.

Mireia studied ADE and Market Research and lives in Barcelona; Miquel is from Palma, but he has been living in Barcelona since he came here to study Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering.

Both have in common a strong social commitment, they love traveling and knowing new ways of living. Mireia, for example, has collaborated on numerous occasions as a volunteer in different groups; Miquel has been involved with the Center for Development Cooperation of the UPC.

Today at this time, surely they will be in Thailand, their first stop of this long adventure that lie ahead.

During their trip, they will travel in Southeast Asia (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia …), Oceania and South America (Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru …). Along the way, they will visit several of the social projects that our ecommerce with cause have helped to finance, will help us to know closely the reality of the region and to know the present and future needs.

If you want to follow in his footsteps, stay tuned because their adventure has just begun!

Social commitment – Why is it also important in employer branding?

We live in an increasingly globalised, and at the same time, competitive world. In the world of business, it is not enough to simply just seduce the client; you must bear in mind everyone who has an interest in the business to achieve the best results. The team, of course, is one of the most important parts of the public, and the capacity to attract talent to the company and retain it depends greatly on the success of the business.

In this context, the businesses’ social commitment and its policy towards sustainability (of the business itself and the planet) becomes fundamental in every relationship it establishes with its public, amongst them, the staff.

Why do we say then that the company’s social responsibility is of prime importance in its employer branding strategy? We will tell you now:

low1

1. In a globalised world, the flow of information is constant. We in live in a society that is extremely connected in which information spreads at an extremely fast rate and which news arrives instantly to a very large audience. In this situation, it is society itself, more informed than ever before, who demands that companies have a bigger commitment and who prefer, when searching for work, those businesses which show a greater social awareness and responsibility.

2. In a globalised world, the personal image is more important than ever. We are increasingly more aware of the importance of our own professional image and it is this awareness, which makes us become more demanding of the companies we work in. We know that our image is closely linked with our job and the company that we work for.

3. In a globalised world, companies compete with other companies from around the world. Location is not an obstacle for a talented employer who is willing to work in any business in the world and from any part of the world. Competition is high and companies have to be on top of their game if they want to attract talent.

4. In a globalised world, we are more and more aware of social problems. The aforementioned constant flow of information makes us more aware of the problems we have to face as a society, and therefore, makes us more responsible for finding the solution. We want to be part of the solution, and above all, we do not want to be a part of the problem.

“Poverty is not only to understand it, but also to solve it”, Vicente Ferrer

capcelera_ENG

Our Ambassadors visit Vicente Ferrer Foundation!

The first time that Vicente Ferrer visited India was in 1952 as a missionary of “Compañía de Jesús”, in Mumbai.  He didn’t imagine then that some years later, the ruling classes of the country would see their contribution as a threat to the country.  In 1968 Ferrer was forced to leave India, but his departure left no one indifferent; a march of 250 km carried out by more than 30.000 people finally made that Indira Ghandi get a new visa to Vicente to stay in India.  In 1969 Vicente and Anna Ferrer founded Vicente Ferrer Foundation in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.

Jordi and Joana with some of the people from Vicente Ferrer Foundation

Today, more than 3 million people benefit from all the projects that the Foundation carries out in order to promote the development of the most poverty and excluded communities. So it is not surprising that locals remember Vicente as “the God who we could touch”.

In Worldcoo we feel very fortunate to have helped to get funds to this organization who we admired so much. For this reason, we were very excited to know the experience of our two ambassadors after visiting two of the projects that our “eCommerce with cause” have helped to fund there:

  • The first one is the pediatric attention care of more than 1.300 kids that the users of Banco Sabadell are helping to fund there, in the Pediatric Hospital in Bathalapalli. You can remember the project HERE.
  • The second project they visited was the dam that Planeta Huerto users funded in order to improve the agricultural and livestock needs of 1.126 people from Agraharam, a village in the district of Anantapur, in India. You can remember the project HERE.

As we explain you, after their adventure in Africa (you can remember their first experience HERE and the second HERE), Jordi and Joana started a new adventure to Anantapur, where there’s the Campus of the Foundation. They explain us their experience. Keep reading!

Joana with some of the students

“50 years ago Anantapur was a very arid, almost deserted rural area. Nowadays, although it is still one of the driest areas in Andhra Pradesh, it is surrounded by several green areas, mainly mango trees and peanut plants, and several reservoirs to store rainwater. These are the most superficial changes the city has undergone. The rest, can be discovered once you enter the Campus that the organization has in Anantapur; it’s like a world apart from the region, even from India.

The first day there we went to Bathalapalli, about 25km from Anantapur. There, there is the project that the users of Banco Sabadell are helping to fund there, the General Hospital and the Pediatric Hospital, as well as some other projects that the organization carries out in the region.

Once we park near the hospital we began to see all the traffic of people entering, leaving, waiting … As they told us, the center has become a reference in the state because of the quality of its services. It is the “jewel of the Crown” of the Foundation. A total of 80 doctors and volunteers attend about 1900 consultations a day. Some months ago, the services were completely free, now each family pays according to what they could afford. People who can’t afford it, receive help from some of the projects they carry out, such as the one that Banco Sabadell participated with WorldCoo. Thanks to their solidarity contribution, 1,300 children will be able to receive free medical care.

hospital

Pediatric Hospital in Bathalapalli

The hospital has two emergency rooms, an ambulance, ten beds for intensive care, laboratories with the most advanced machinery, a blood bank recognized by the government, 350 postoperative beds, an optical gynecology section… And also has the area of Pediatrics, with capacity up to 80 children and the neonatal ICU.

We met one of the volunteers and explained that when he arrived at the hospital, he had a lot of prejudices about the type of place where he would work, but that, in fact, he had there the same machines as in Spain.

The second project we visited was the dam that the users of Planeta Huerto had helped to fund through WorldCoo.

Water reservoirs are a key element in boosting the economy of Andra Pradesh, India’s second most arid state. The weather conditions the agriculture of the country, the livelihood of almost 80% of the population.

Through the construction of this reservoir, it will be possible to irrigate about 50 hectares, directly benefiting 12 families of farmers and 203 families of this town indirectly.

Joana and Jordi in one of the villages they visited

What we saw in these and other projects is that the main objective of Vicente and Anna was always to empower the lower class, those who were always scorned and even killed by their illness or condition, which represented a shame for the family . Dalits, people who are deaf, dumb, with Down syndrome, AIDS patients or with mobility problems due to polio. Everyone has understood that they are the same as others and now families are even proud of their achievements. One day Vincent said: “My job is to achieve impossible dreams” and it is precisely this feeling that one takes from the Foundation, to witness a miracle”.

The experience of Jordi and Joana in Patongo, Uganda

Our Worldcoo Ambassadors visited the project which we help to fund through Santa Fixie Group and Chance for Childhood

capcelera_ENG

The adventure of Jordi and Joana around Africa has allowed us to know firsthand some of the projects we have funded and the impact they have had. Some days ago, we talked about the social use of the bicycle and today we prove it.

After visiting the rural school which we collaborated with some months ago with the NGO Active Africa in Tumm (Kenia) – you can remember the project HERE – our two ambassadors continued their adventures around Africa towards Patongo, Uganda.

DSC04230

Joana and Jordi with some of the people who have participated in this program

Patongo is a rural area in the North of the country that still suffers the consequences of two decades of conflicts between the government and the army. As a result, many children were orphaned, and today, most of them live in groups under the tutelage of some adults in the community. The oldest girl of the small group is the one who cares about the day-to-day. She takes care of cooking, taking care of her siblings and maintaining the family garden while her siblings go to school. Most of them have had to drop out of school because schools are too far from home and don’t have time to combine work from home with school.

In front of this situation, the local NGO Passion for Community, together with Chance for Childhood, started a project in order to distribute bicycles to orphaned girls so that the lack of time and travel to their school doesn’t imply an impediment to be able to continue their studies, to bring the vegetable surplus to the market more easily, to arrive to the doctor in time if any member of the family becomes ill … and, ultimately, take control of his own life.

Here in Worldcoo we know firsthand this project because just a few months ago we helped to finance the distribution of 25 bicycles by Santa Fixie Group, one of the e-commerce that collaborate with us. You can remember the project HERE.

In Patongo, Jordi and Joana have had the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the teenagers who have been able to continue their studies as a result of this program. Here, there are some of them!

Margaret Amono

Margaret Amono is the oldest sister of a group of 6 who, years ago, became orphans. Thought the bicycle she can now study hairdressing in Patongo.

“I’m Margaret Amono. Before I got this bicycle I used to walk on foot to school and reached the school late. I didn’t concentrate very much on the lessons  because I was feeling tired. But now that I’ve received the bicycle, I am able to reach the school early enough. I reach when I’m fresh and I have time to concentrate.

This bicycle is as well helping me carry food items from the garden and bring it home. Others, it’s also helping me like when one of my siblings is sick, I take him or her to the hospital with the bicycle. I’m also able to reach the market. So, I’m saying thank you so, so much because the bicycle is helping me a lot”.

I’m Atto Scovia. I’m 16 years old. The bicycle I was given in July, so it’s roughly 5 months now. So the bicycle is helping me for transport because I come from a far sub-county from this place. I normally travel with another young one who comes and gets back with the bicycle to keeps on helping them from home.

The bicycle is also helping us to fetch water because from our place, the drinking water source of very far away.  We also use the bicycle to get to the market to sell some of the food products that we harvested and to carry other food crops from the garden”.

“I’m Acem Pamela. After giving me the bicycle I am now coming to the Youth Centre to attend the course of hairdressing. The bicycle is as well helping me to take anybody who is sick from our home to the hospital. I use it on a daily basis; I ride, come with it to school then I get back home. On the weekend, I use it to carry food crops from the garden and bring it home. I also use it to carry water. Those are the things I am using this bicycle for.”


Jordi, Joana, thank you very much for giving us your impressions and visiting this project so special for us.

It has been a pleasure. The truth is that when we think about volunteering in countries like Uganda, we always come to mind the great name of the most famous organizations that have been in these countries for so many years (UNICEF, UNHCR …).

It was very interesting to see and verify that a local organization and another not so well-known have been able to mount this whole project and put it into practice satisfactorily. What a great job!

Often, from home, there is the uncertainty of whether the help we can send from here is appropriate and if they reach their destination. That is why it is important to have confidence in the project or in the entity in which you donate support. The projects we have visited optimize and take advantage of every help they receive and that, to us, makes us continue to believe in collaboration between people.

Worldcoo Ambassador network keeps growing!

Today we introduce you Patrick, our new ambassador in Nepal.

capcelera_ENG

DSC00409 (1)Patrick has always had a strong social commitment. During all his life, he has collaborated and participated with so many projects and social causes, such as the fight against gender violence, animal abuse or the care of elderly people. But it’s now when Patrick is going to face what will surely be the most powerful experience of his life.

Patrick, sales engineer from Holland, took a flight to Nepal at the beginning of February.  His purpose was visiting and collaborating with different NGOs from the country. The first one was Street Child, organization which we have collaborated in several occasions.  

Following, Patrick explains us a little bit more why he started this adventure and how was his first experience in Katmandu.

  • Welcome on board to our Ambassador Program, Patrick! Why did you start this new adventure?

Thank you so much for the introduction! Sometimes, we don’t realize about how quickly live goes, and this is what happened to me. School, institute, university, internship, first work, second work… And all of this inside my happiness bubble. During my university studies I had a dream, and it was to travel around countries very much different from mine. This dream was never fulfilled. But some months ago, making auto-introspection, I rescued the idea and as now I don’t have so many familiar obligations and before continuing my personal career, I decided to make this dream come true.

  • Why Nepal and not any other country?

Because I wanted to go to a country very different from mine: different culture, social conditioning, everything I’m used to and where I could help.  There was a lot of countries where I would like to live, so it was quite difficult to take a decision. But I love the mountain, so I finally decided to visit Himalaya, the biggest aspiration I could ever have. Moreover, I got the chance to help a mountain guide, Shiva, with his company, Himkala Adventure, which, at the same time, help as much as possible to the people of his native area, Gorkha (epicenter of the 2015 earthquakes). So the decision was made on its own.

  • What do you expect to do here? Explain us a little bit more about the projects you will visit and what will be your role.  

DSC00405 (1)Two weeks ago, we went to my host hometown, Shiva, where I left most of the material and clothes I could bring from Barcelona, as well as participate in a traditional Hindu wedding, all very enriching.

Some days ago, I visited an orphanage, Possible Nepal, which I could contact via Couchsurfing. I could bought some food for some days, as well as scholarly material. I also could help with the translation of some documents and I played with the kids, who are very nice. A council for those who want to buy material there and bring it to Nepal: keep your budget and buy in Kathmandu, you can get 10 times more material. To give you an idea, with 12 € we buy 60 kg of potatoes, and with 9 € 44 workbooks.

In addition, I will visit Shed The Light Nepal, a joint iniciative between Australia and Nepal who work for peace, the reconstruction after hearthwater, help children, and empowering women in Nepal. As a Worldcoo Ambassador, I have just visited the NGO Street Child Nepal in order to see what are they doing there, who are they helping and how are they doing it.

  • What has impressed you the most?

The good mood with which people of Nepal carry the difficulties. Although the salary of most of them is very low, there are a lot of people without home because of earthquakes, collapsed buildings, pollution and poverty, they are the most pleasant and friendly people I could ever met. And I could understand a certain resentment towards the tourists, who just go there to do trekking in their mountains. But that doesn’t happen. Children, elderly people, everyone. Despite all the difficulties, they go ahead with many more smiles than most people you see in European cities.

DSC00414 (1)

  • You have visited a school that Street Child built in order that children from immigrant families working in brick factories could have access to education. What has been your impression?

It has been great, and it has been a very interesting and surprising experience. There are a lot of concepts that one doesn’t think about: that there is a season for brick making, winter, avoiding the rainy season because bricks are dried outdoors before going through the oven; That workers are generally from villages outside the Kathmandu valley, and even from India, and that they are attracted by the security of 6 months of work.

The work of Street Child of Nepal, together with Kopila Nepal, is very good and helps on many fronts at the same time: it gives education to the sons and daughters of families who work in the brick factory, but also guarantees they are safe and well cared for, and thanks to all this gives better working conditions to those who work there. They know that their children are close, learning and well cared for.

  • How would you describe people who live there?

It is not easy to live there, in a special cabins between the bricks they are building, with so many animals and very far away from their homes. Despite all of this bad conditions, they are happy, polite and with a permanent smile. They are very optimist, so it makes one wonder what we do wrong in places where there is more wealth to have such high rates of depression and intolerance

  • What do you think that are the most needs that they have right now?

DSC00402 (1)I don’t know how I could start. On the first hand, there is not many work in small villages, so they have to go to the city. Moreover, the best opportunities and education are in the metropolis, so they come here both for them and their children.

Related to the project, there’s a small school with one unique space and two toilets and a fence that closes the playtime space. It’s really good, because the structure and foundations are solid, earthquake-proof, and the idea is to have the basics, and that’s achieved. But there are limitations that requires more funds.

For example, there are a lot of employees who come from India and their children can’t go to school because they can’t do two classes in two different languages: Nepali and Hindi. So they need to build one more space for Indian kids.

In addition, there are many more boys and girls than can be admitted in the classroom, so they could also build another module just to accommodate more children.

Then, at the end of the brick season, families return to their homes and the school closes, basically because of the lack of funds, and the service is provided in the work season because it is when there is more need. With a little more, given that the physical structure and material is a non-recurring expense, the school could be maintained open throughout the year, thus giving fixed work to the teachers, and serving the children of the zone.

In short, more modules like the one they already built, one to accommodate more Nepali children and one to teach in Hindi, as well as more funds that could  help to maitain the shcool open all year, would be very useful for them. 

  • Can you share with us some anecdote?

DSC00412 (1)About the kids: before leaving, the teacher told us to wait there because the kids had something for us. One girl came to me and gave me a drawing that remind me about mandala, with small and lighting stars and with a message inside: “Welcome to Kopila preparatory class”. She gave another drawing to my friend, Duncan Peat, and both of us thanked her with a lot of “dhanyabhadh”, “thank you” in Nepalese. Luckily, I had sweets in my bag and we could gave them some. It was the perfect goodbye for this wonderful visit with a strong message: we can contribute and help them a lot with so little effort. 

Patrick is now a Worldcoo Ambssador and his adventure in Nepal has just begun, so keep tuned!

Promofarma starts new project!

capaces 4 - copia

Once again, Promofarma users, one of the e-commerce with cause who work with us, have showed their solidarity. Through their collaboration with the campaign “One plus one, it is much more” promoted by Unicef, more than 7.000 kids will have access to clean water during one month. You can remember this project HERE.

The well-known Theodora Foundation is the next entity with which now the community of Promofarma can begin to collaborate. As you know, through the visits of Giggle Doctors, Theodora Foundation humanizes the stay in the hospital and helps to alleviate the suffering of all hospitalized children. Nonetheless, on this occasion, the euros collected will go to the “Able to Smile” project, an initiative that we haven’t talked about yet and which seeks to promote the autonomy and development of children with intellectual diversity through sensory stimulation.

A child with functional diversity responds very differently to stimuli; for example, some unexpected things can make them laugh, like a cry or a sneeze. Through the provocation of this laugh,Giggle Doctors acts by favouring their sensory and physical response, motivating the oxygenation of the cellular tissues and improving the immune system response.

Thanks to their collaboration, Giggle Doctors will be able to visit 35 children with intellectual disability, thus enhancing their sensorial and physical development.

One year later

One year ago, the European Commission accredited Worldcoo technology as the European standard in eCommerce fundraising.

H2020-Web

Horizon 2020 is the biggest European Commission Research and Innovation program ever. It contributes to addressing key social challenges, promoting industrial leaderships in Europe and strengthening excellence in science. Among nearly 1.000 companies candidates to being part of this program, our innovative Project WIDGET 3.0 made that we were one of the 9 Spanish companies selected and since there… we have worked so much! :)

Logo_widget_3.0Over the past 12 months, we have worked on developing new and better online applications that will allow us to respond to many more social causes. Today we explain you some of them!

  • We have everything prepared to implement a new functionality that will make that many companies collect funds for the same cause and at the same time. This is what we called “public campaigns”. Thanks of that, we will be able to give a much faster and effective response to the different humanitarian emergencies and natural catastrophes that may occur. But in addition, it will allow smaller e-commerce to start collaborating with us.
  • We have developed a new module which facilitates the integration of the new widget 3.0 to those companies that work with online platforms such as MAGENTO or PRESTASHOP, which is a very good news!
  • In the coming weeks, we will incorporate a new module that will offer to each user the opportunity to collaborate with a social project based on their profile and motivations. We get it thanks to techniques of artificial intelligence, which are based on the product and price of what the user searches online. This will allow us to have a higher conversion rate. This is called “machine learning”.
  • During all this time, we have improved our internal management platform to expand and improve our recruitment channels with a much more personalized response to all companies that collaborate with us.
  • And last but not least, during this last months we have laid the groundwork for launching a new revolutionary financing channel that will come this 2017. It is a new channel that will allow donations in the physical stores directly. When a customer pay with his credit card, he will be able to add a euro to his purchase or round the final amount of his purchase. Undoubtedly, this is the biggest novelty that we will present and that, for sure, it is going to have a lot of impact.

All this new functionalities will allow us to become a world reference and, most important, to achieve our goal for 2017: to triple the number of donations received.  We will keep you informed about more news!

It is a digital company that works to bring value where it is most needed, a key factor if we expect a change versus a more sustainable development of our societies.

  • By your profile and way of being, what distinctive component do you think you can contribute to the Worldcoo team?

I think I have a very versatile profile in this world of specialists. Within a while, I hope to feel satisfied that I have helped the Worldcoo team in areas unrelated to my most direct work responsibilities. Maybe, focused on managing teams or people.


And some more personal…

If you aren’t at work, we will surely find you… Doing sport and enjoying nature. I need time to escape to open spaces and relax, whether it’s flying across seas scuba diving or running through the mountains linking peaks and rocky places.

I enjoy traveling and I try to do it often. Whenever possible, combining adventure, nature and culture, but according to this order of priorities, if not possible the combination of all of them.

Some of my other hobbies are cats, writing, laughing, photography, movies, series, documentaries, technology and music (this last one just as a consumer).

Always that I can… I dedicate myself to observe and try to understand the world where we live, to enjoy a good meal and good drinking; All of them inescapable inheritance.

I love visiting places I don’t know, even if they are next to my home, and being permanently discovered.

You couldn’t live without… Enjoying the madness of the people.

If you could choose one “super power” it would be… Being able to move between dimensions and temporal spaces.

Worldcoo Team.
