In Spain, the 30.5% of children live at risk of poverty and social exclusion. In addition, because of the crisis, the government has reduced the investment in childhood, especially in education and social protection, limiting the opportunities of the children that are in poverty situation and increasing the possibility that their poverty becomes chronic.
The situation, in which children and their families are, is becoming unsustainable because they haven’t incomes or basic helps to go ahead. To help to overcome this situation, Obra Social “la Caixa” created the program Caixa Proinfancia. This program has the collaboration of more than 30 social entities from the 10 main Spanish cities and their metropolitan areas and which in turn, coordinate more than 300 organizations working in network around Spain.
At the end of July, the first club of private sales Dreivip, integrated the Worldcoo’s solidary widget. Since then, Dreivip has offer to its customers the possibility to help fund the project that had the aim to fight against child poverty.
During these months Dreivip customers have been making donations in their purchases. Today we are very happy to announce that thanks to the solidarity of Dreivip customers, Obra Social may help to break the poverty cycle of 10 children. With 3.500€ donated by Dreivip customers a daily breakfast and a weekly educative session for 10 kids during 6 months.
With this project we already have 43 funded projects!
Thanks to Dreivip to be an ecommerce with a cause and thank to its customers to make this project a reality and help to say NO to child poverty.
