Zacaris.com, the e-commerce leader in online shoe sales, has a change of project and over the coming months will help the Surt Foundation raise funds for the program ´Open Doors´ with all the donations made with our solidarity widget during the process of buying. The ´Open Doors´ Project is a tool for women who have lost their support networks and are in a helpless situation. It offers a program of social care and empowerment of women in poverty by which their basic needs (food, clothing, housing, etc.) are covered and in turn, they receive the tools needed to be independent ( empowerment groups, job counseling, training etc.).

Surt Foundation supports gender equality
This Foundation has been working since 1993 to facilitate the process of integration of women into the job market, especially those who, for reasons of a social, cultural and personal context, are in situations of vulnerability. SURT is a transformative project, committed to women in the hope to build a society with gender equality in the economic, social and cultural sector. To achieve this, they work on different areas, promoting fair employment conditions and a non-discriminative workforce; generating knowledge and raising awareness regarding discrimination based on sex, which affects the social, economic and labor market participation of women, especially in the professional field; and to take action to promote respect for cultural diversity and defense of the rights of citizenship for women.

Following the success of the campaign For one@ more, by Worldcoo in April 2013, the official report will enable all our donors to see the evolution of this campaign. The project´s objective was to raise the necessary funds for a student from a poor country or a situation of conflict, to come and en-role at the International Master in Peace, Conflict and Development Studies of the University Jaume I, located in the town of Castellón. The idea for the campaign came from the students themselves following the cancellation of all public subsidies for the granting of these scholarships.

Raul Montes Osorio, was the lucky one who received the award thanks to funding obtained by the community @Worldcoo. A total of € 5,340 was raised in 5 weeks, from 146 donors. According to Raul´s report, the results of his first year have been more than satisfactory, both in academics and student integration into the community. In his final year, apart from gaining the last 60 credits of the Master,  Raul needs to present his final Master’s project  in Professional Counseling publicly before a tribunal constituted for this purpose. This is to evaluate the quality of work and decide if it is suitable for obtaining the ´Masters´ title.

We wish you the best of luck in this course Raul!
