New collaboration with Movistar+!

Movistar + has launched a new fundraising campaign to get funds and collaborate with Vicente Ferrer Foundation together with Worldcoo.

Movistar+ Positivo (3)Radio Gaga is a program produced by Movistar+ and DIo Producciones in which Quique Peinado and Manuel Burque travel around our country in a caravan that becomes a radio studio when they arrive to their destination. The two presenters look for anonymous protagonists who can explain their great stories.

In their last program of this second season, Radio Gaga crosses our borders to travel to Anantapur (India) and give voice to the Spanish volunteers who work with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation.

The objective they pursue is to provide access to quality health care to children under 15 years of age in rural areas of the state of Andhra Pradesh, as well as pregnant and lactating women and to contribute to the reduction of infant mortality.

In India, the under-5 mortality is 43% and is due, mainly, to neonatal causes.

The total amount collected will be allocated entirely to the Pediatric Hospital of the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, located in the town of Bathalapalli, one of the main centers available to provide coverage for children from 0 to 15 years in the Anantapur district.

Therapy dogs with children with autism

capcelera_bocalán

Those who follow us on social network, may know that Mascoteros has recently funded its last project, which has helped Jadoul Foundation to feed 170 homeless dogs during one month and a half.  You can remember the project HERE.

It is not the first time that Mascoteros customers show their social commitment when making their purchases. In fact, to date, its customers have raised close to € 10,000. Thanks to them, 4 social entities could start up their projects related to the animal world

Now, they initiate a new challenge so that children with autism (or Autism Spectrum Disorder) can carry out their therapy together with dogs, something that will increase their motivation and, consequently, the results of the therapy they follow.

bocalan_logoThey will do it together with Bocalán Foundation, an entity characterized by the inclusion of animals within therapeutic or educational processes with different groups that allow greater participation.

And it is that, often, people with autism show alterations in communication and social interaction, causing them difficulties in relating and understanding social behaviors, as well as difficulties in the language. Dogs help to capture the attention of children and encourages their participation in therapy by being a living being that moves, has different textures, smells and interacts directly with them.

 The challenge of the Mascoteros clients will be to obtain the necessary capital so that 10 children with autism can benefit from the assisted therapy with dogs for 4 months.

Drinking water wells in Malawi

capcelera_uvinum

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa. Living conditions are harsh, almost 90% of the population lives on subsistence agriculture. There are no infrastructures that channel the water of the great lake of the country, the farmers depend on rainwater, which makes them extremely vulnerable.

355Once collected the necessary amount to guarantee that 400 children receive annual treatment against childhood malnutrition in Kenia (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of Uvinum start a new challenge in order to distribute drinking water in Malawi.

active_logoThey will do it together with Active Africa, a NGO which is dedicated to improving the socio-economic and sustainable development of the poorest rural populations in Malawi and Kenya.

Thanks to the construction of a water well, the population of Nkhotakota (one of the most deprived regions of Malawi), will avoid having to collect water in exposed places (such as rivers, streams, lakes or ponds), a great source of water diseases.

At the same time, women and children and children in the region will not have to travel long distances to find water, which will facilitate the continued enrolment of children, especially in the case of girls.

Euro to euro, Uvinum’s customers will facilitate that Active Africa can build a well in the district of Nkhotakota and provide Access to drinking water to 600 people.

Training of women as bicycle technicians

capcelera_santafixie

Santafixie-GroupWe have spoken many times of Santa Fixie Group’s continued commitment to the use of bicycles as a tool for social and labor inclusion. Through their latest funded project, they have managed to get 25 children and young people from Palmarín (Senegal) to go to school thanks to the delivery of multiple bicycles (you can remember the project HERE).

Now, through Maya Pedal, they present us with a new concept of bicycles: bicimachines, an ecological alternative that proposes to replace motors that consume electricity or petroleum derivatives.

mp_logoMaya Pedal is an organization that works to improve the conditions of Guatemalan families, while at the same time contributing in each of their actions to the environment. The entity is a pioneer in the creation of bi-machines, which are driven with the force of pedals, through human propulsion.

They are machines that use the power of pedaling to drive “appliances”, such as blenders, washing machines, water pumps… No need for electricity. So they are a good tool to support the family economy.

In addition, since they are built by hand in the Maya Pedal workshop, they are also a very good opportunity to access the labor market. This is the goal of this campaign: to raise the amount needed to train adolescents who have left school so that they can work as bicycle and bicycle mechanic techniques.

All the euros collected by Santa Fixie will enable the entity to train 30 teenagers between 14 and 19 in San Andrés Itzapa (Guatemala) as bicycle and bicycle repair techniques, which will allow them to enter the labor market.
