Education against childhood poverty in Spain

Spain has the second highest percentage of childhood poverty out of all of Europe.  Nowadays, one of three Spanish children live at risk of poverty or social exclusion. In the last five years, the investment in childhood has been reduced by almost 15% and this fact makes it ever more difficult to come out of this situation.

The NGO Save the Children attends to more than 5.000 Spanish children daily. They provide to the children the opportunity to have a better future so they may leave of the circle of poverty in which they are now in. Thanks to the coordination between Save the Children, Social Services and schools, they identify children that could be at risk of poverty and they talk with their parents in order to make them form part of their comprehensive care program.

For Save the Children, education is the main road for children will be able to leave from the situation of poverty and social exclusion. For this reason, Save the Children support difficulties that the child may have to reduce school absenteeism, promote the education through the values, healthy habits and in the educational games and comprehensive work with the families through the family psychosocial support to solve the emotional conflicts with their child. At the same time, they give help to their feeding, school supplies, glasses… according to the needs of each child.
