Education for girls in Fatick (Senegal)

capcelera_ticket

This September, Ticketmaster collaborates with Save the Children

Unfortunately, there are still many countries where girls are forced to leave primary school at an early age to start working as domestic servants and contribute to household income. Senegal is one of these countries.

Although it is one of the most stable West African countries where the survival of children has improved in recent years, but education remains the main concern: less than one in five girls can go to high school, while among adults there are only six literate women for every 10 literate men.

Children refugees receive more help

The effects of the intense conflict taking place in Syria and much of Iraq have generated a crisis of unprecedented refugees and migrants in Europe.

Miles of families have fled the horror in desperate search of a decent life. With these families travel children and many of them lose their parental care exposing to suffer serious consequences such as abuse, trafficking, forced labour, sexual exploitation, detention or drug trafficking.

At the same time, many other families have remained in the country. According to Aldeas Infantiles SOS t is been estimated that there are 7.6 million Syrians that have been internally displaced and nearly 4 million of people have been displaced or are displaced by neighbouring countries.

From the beginning of the Syrian conflict, Aldeas Infantiles SOS has worked to give their help to families and children refugees that are in Syria or that have been displaced to some of the countries where Aldeas Infantiles SOS are present. But they not only are giving response to urgent needs, they are also helping unaccompanied children to be reunited with their families.

In order to help Aldeas Infantiles SOS, the customers of our e-commerce with a cause Pc Componentes have had the opportunity to make a donation to help improve the situation of all the refugees.

Thanks to their help, Aldeas Infantiles SOS will be able to help children traveling alone, young mothers and mothers with young children with malnutrition and protect them from the effects of war and displacement.

With the 6.000€ donated by Pc Componentes customers, 200 refugees will receive an emergency kit valued at 20€. This kit contains food and basic products as clothes, hygiene products and specific equipment needed to meet refugee’s needs.

No child without a meal during Christmas: report of funding of the project

Today we are presenting the report of funding and monitoring of the project No child without a meal at Christmas in which PcComponentes collaborated with Aldeas infantiles SOS.

At the beginning of December 2014 we informed you that Pc Componentes joined with Worldcoo and it became a one of our e-commerce with a cause. Its new project had the aim to guarantee a balanced and healthy feeding to children who were living in a vulnerability situation in Spain.

If we make a comparison between the situation of vulnerability in children one year ago and the situation of vulnerability in children now, we realize that the situation hasn’t improved. One of ten children in Spain live under the poverty line and, sadly, this situation can become chronic unless measures are taken.

To help improve the situation of many Spanish children, Aldeas Infantiles SOS launched the Project Children’s Dining Halls in its day centers and it launched a School Lunchroom Program to contribute children of families at risk can eat during Christmas and prevent children from suffering by the insecurity caused by the economic difficulties of their environment.

One of the commitments from Worldcoo is to monitor the funded projects and track every € donated by the users of our e-commerce with a cause.

The customers of Pc Componentes were making their donations every time they make a purchase and, in 50 days, they donated 10.770€ that has been distributed in:

–          School Lunchroom Program of Aldeas Infantiles SOS: 92 children from Madrid, Barcelona and Toledo schools have benefited from the program.

–          Day Centers of Aldeas Infantiles SOS: 3.630€ have been allocated to help to obtain a healthy food to children that go to day centers in Canarias, Madrid and Zaragoza.

In the next picture you can see it all closer:

Thanks to all people who helped make this project has been made possible and we take this opportunity to encourage you to continue helping to create a high social impact.

Help and protection to unaccompanied children refugees

Five years ago, as a result of factors like corruption, injustice, inequality, human rights violations and poverty a war began in Syria. This war has caused one of the worst refugee crisis of the century.

Since the beginning on the war, thousands of families have fled searching for a decent living environment, while other families have stayed in the country. According to Aldeas Infantiles SOS, it is been estimated that there are 7.6 million Syrians that have been internally displaced and nearly 4 million of people have been displaced or are displaced by neighboring countries.

Unfortunately, the main victims of the war are the children. Many children have only knew the war, other have had to leave the school and the woman can’t give birth in hospitals because they are destroyed or they have no medical staff. Worst of all, are the thousands of violations, abuses and child exploitation that many children have suffered because they have remained alone and have no protection.

From the beginning of the Syrian conflict, Aldeas Infantiles SOS has worked to give their help to families and children that are in Syria or that have been displaced to some of the countries where Aldeas Infantiles SOS are present. But they not only are giving response to urgent needs, they are also helping unaccompanied children to be reunited with their families.

protección niños refugiados

Our e-commerce with a cause Pc Componentes also wants to give a protection to unaccompanied children refugees, young mothers and mothers with young children with malnutrition. For that reason, Pc Componentes is offering its customers the possibility to donate 1 euro in their purchases in order to help Aldeas Infantiles to protect these children from the effects of the war and displacement.

Thanks to the solidarity of Pc Componentes customers, 200 refugees, especially unaccompanied children, young mothers, mothers with children (especially malnourished children under 5 years) and pregnant women will receive an emergency kit valued at 20€. This kit contains food and basic products as a clothes, hygiene products and specific equipment needed to meet refugee’s needs.

Syrian refugees: emergency help

The situation of Syrian refugees is not improving. Syrian people continue to come to Europe to flee from the situation they are having in their country and the number of people who have died trying to cross the Mediterranean has increased. Refugee reception centers are scarce, winter is coming and the government does not respond with the celerity and solidarity that this situation requires.

Many people that are arriving in Europe from Syria are children, most of them are traveling alone and they may be exposed to become victims of violence, human trafficking, corruption or extortion. Aldeas Infantiles SOS, are focusing on attending to children that have lost their parents or that are separated from them. They are also focusing on mothers with young children. They are giving food supplies like products for babies, blankets and diapers and they are increasing childcare places.

Nicequest, the online platform that converts the participation in opinionated studies in a new pleasant and remunerated experience, wanted to contribute with Aldeas Infantiles SOS. Their aim is to help children traveling alone, young mothers and mothers with young children with malnutrition and protect them from the effects of war and displacement, offered to its users the possibility to change their points for donations.

Syrian Refugees: emergency help

In only two weeks, Nicequest users have donated 10.000 euros and, thanks to them, Aldeas Infantiles SOS will provide emergency kits with food and basic hygiene and food products to address the most pressing needs of Syrian children.  They also will provide kits with basic products of sanitation and hygiene, raincoats and blankets to cover children needs.

We would like to thank Nicequest for their commitment, once again, to give assistance to refugee children and we would also like to thank to Nicequest users for their solidarity, thanks to them, 500 people will be directly benefited.

With this project, we have 35 funded projects and more than 64.000 direct beneficiaries!

Help Syrian refugees

To date, and after all the news arriving through the television, newspapers and social media, nobody will be surprised when we say that we are living one of the worst refugee crisis of this century.

Since the conflict between army of Bashar al-Assad and the rebels began in March 2011, according to a BBC article, more than 4.000.000 people have escaped from Syria to neighboring countries searching a decent life.

We are clearly facing a migration crisis that transcends borders, thousands of people crossing the countries with complicated and dangerous conditions. In the first half of this year, approximately 160.000 people arrived from different countries through the Mediterranean, an 83% higher than a year ago. The worst thing of this numbers is that all these people, more than 6.400 are children and half these children were unaccompanied by family, they were alone.

Aldeas Infantiles SOS are available to help Syrian refugees in different points of their way and put at service of these families and children unattended all of their attention. Internationally, the organization is being coordinated with a joint action and, in every recipient country, they are working with the relevant authorities and other social entities for giving an effective response. Moreover, in the home countries, like Syria, Aldeas Infantiles SOS maintains all of their programs trying to normalize children’s daily life, as far as possible, in a country in conflict, ensuring their protection, nutrition, health, education and games.

Children are supposed have to smile all the time, no have pain or misery. All of our team are working hard to obtain this important aim, for that, we collaborate with the nutritional supplement for the children.”- Loubana Al Jadaly, Aldeas Infantiles worker

Help Syrian refugees

 

Nicequest, after to help children to have access to a quality education, wants to collaborate with Aldeas Infantiles SOS in order to 500 refugees, specially unaccompanied children, young mothers, mothers with children (especially malnourished children under 5 years) and pregnant women will receive an emergency kit with alimentation and sanitation products and specific material to tackle their urgent needs.

Futhermore, Aldeas Infantiles SOS will provide adequate care and assistance, medical and psycho-social support to children and families, useful information for their travel and they will distribute emergency kits with food and sanitation packages, raincoats, blankets and basic hygiene items based on refugees needs.

The Syrian conflict not have a solution in sight and the attempts for achieve a political solution have failed. For this reason, any outside help is very important for all of these people fighting for a better life.

Children’s Diner Scholarship Program of Aldeas Infantiles SOS

This month, the cause has been chosen as the Children’s Diner Scholarship Program. This entity provides soup kitchens in different Spanish cities, where many families frequent due to situations like evictions, unemployment and a lack of economic income. These prevention programs do their best to help these families, guiding them so they can find work and aiding in the care of their children. But increasingly, these families need help to cover the basic essentials: food, clothing and school supplies needs. This year the entity has encountered 542 children with a particularly urgent need for basic meals, therefore, this new scholarship program has been inniciated, so that children can stay and eat in their respective schools, allowing them to maintain a normal life.
This video summarizes the action and mission of SOS Children, a private, non profit international organization, which helps children and was founded in 1949 in Imst (Austria) and is now has activities in 133 countries.


LetsBonus Act Program
The program ‘Acts LetsBonus’ supports the more real and closer problems to heart in our day to day lives. To date, the NGO Friends of the biggest, Adsis Foundation, AccióNatura, the Federation of Autism Madrid have been the beneficiaries of the solidarity of its members. Worldcoo has been involved in the selection and auditing of projects submitted, ensuring compliance and traceability of donations received.
