Education for young people

capcelera_impulsa

In line with the Labour Day, the different small ecommerce that collaborate with us through the charity widget, start today a new challenge in order to support the access to education for young people.

Did you know that in Spain, 32% of young people are excluded from the state scholarship system, between 40% -50% fail in the medium-level formal education cycles and 32% do not have a high school diploma?

Many students can’t continue with their formal education for economic reasons and many of those who start drop out due to lack of personal support

logo_impulsaIn front of this situation, organizations such as Fundación Impulsa work in order that all students have the same opportunities of studies.

Impulsa wants to give them the opportunity to achieve it, preventing their economic and social situation from being a barrier. They assist the young people transversally through the foundation’s scholarships by providing new professional opportunities to which they could not have had access.

With more than 100 successful cases, Impulsa has achieved that 95% of the scholarship students finish their studies. Sixty-two percent of them continue their studies at a higher level than at the end of Vocational Training. And 71% of young people get a job when they finish their studies.

 

Through this campaign, young studies with socio economic difficulties will have the opportunity to continue their studies.

We remind you that, if you want, you can have more information and follow the fundraising status HERE.

“Kiciclos” at hospitals

The customers of Santa Fixie Group collaborate with Juegaterapia

 santafixie_cabecera

Playing brings great benefits in children who are hospitalized during long periods. It generates a different atmosphere with positive emotions and help them to escape from stress and anxiety.

logo_SFThe customers of Santa Fixie start today a new challenge and, for the first time, they do it together with Fundación Juegaterapia, an institution which was born in 2010 with the mission to brighten the lives of hospitalized children. They work so that every day all children with cancer just think about doing what any other child: play!

Everybody who wants to collaborate, they can add €1 to their purchase and help Juegaterapia to buy new “kiciclos”.

What is this?

logo_juegaterapiaThe “kiciclos” are tricycles with a built-in carrier so that the little ones can run around the hospital while they receive their chemotherapy sessions. The children will be able to carry out dizzying careers with their friends at the hospital while receiving the treatment.

Thanks of this, children at hospitals will be able to reduce the anguish that comes with receiving chemo-therapy sessions through play. Through the “kiciclos”, they will receive chemo while running around the hospital with these funny tricycles.

capcelera_PH

Did you know that the chimpanzee of West Africa is at risk of extinction? In Senegal, it is estimated that its population is about 500 individuals.

planeta huertoAfter raising the necessary funds to facilitate the access to drinking water in Tanzania (you can remember the project here), now the customers of Planeta Huerto can add €1 for charity and collaborate with the Jane Goodall Institute.

The new project, which they have recently started, has the objective to establish and implement protection measures that help to protect 3 communities of chimpanzees of a subspecies in critical state of extinction. Deforestation and habitat fragmentation due to human activities are the main factors that threaten their disappearance.

LOGO_03 vertical pngSince 2009 the Jane Goodall Institute has developed conservation and investigation programs for wild chimpanzees in the Dindéfélo Community Natural Reserve (southern Senegal), as well as sustainable development projects and environmental education with local communities.

All the clients of Planeta Huerto that collaborate with the campaign, will contribute in the protection of the habitat of the chimpanzee through the accomplishment and implementation of a plan of the protection of the habitat, such as the creation of firebreaks and the sensitization of the local population.

You can have more information about the project and the raising process HERE.

The most vulnerable population groups are minors, women, and people with disabilities or the elderly. They suffer even more from the consequences of the conflict, such as violence or lack of access to basic services such as healthcare.

logo_medicosIn front of this situation, entities such as “Médicos del Mundo”, provide assistance and contribute to the protection of the population of the Bor region, with special emphasis on women and children.
