Gender equality in the school

capcelera_ayuda

logo_sprinter“The latest report of the World Economic Forum on the gender gap warns that, after a decade of slow but steady progress, this year several indicators of parity have not only stagnated but have worsened.”

Coinciding with the return to school, Sprinter launches today a new fundraising campaign with which they offer to all their customers the option to donate one euro for charity and collaborate with Ayuda en Acción through their program “Aquí también”.

logo_ayudaenaccionThe objective is to apply the gender perspective in education to achieve full equality of rights between women and men from childhood through extracurricular leisure activities.

Thanks to this, 20 children will be able to participate in this program and end the intergenerational transmission of poverty through education outside the classroom with an inclusive perspective on gender equality and favoring equal opportunities.

How to do it?

When you’re paying for the articles you have bought, you can add one social euro and collaborate to end gender inequality.

A summer full of opportunities

jovenes adsis

Continuing socio-educational activity in summer is key to preventing risky behaviour and offering opportunities that normally young people at risk of social exclusion do not have access to.  This is, among other, one of the main priorities of Adsis Foundation and now the customers of PcComponentes will be able to contribute to this same cause.

leadImage_previewAfter collecting the necessary funds in order to CRIS Cancer Foundation could fund a new treatment for a kid with cancer (you can remember the project HERE), the new challenge for PcComponentes will be helping Adsis Foundation to ensure that 250 kids and teenagers between 11 and 18 years old from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Barcelona and Valencia can assist to educational and cultural workshops, sports activities and receive breakfast and snacks during this summer.

These are young people who are in situation of vulnerability and because of economic limitations they do not have access to leisure activities.

Fundación Adsis works to turn situations of inequality into opportunities. During the school year, it offers emotional and educational support to children and adolescents and is also present during the holidays, to continue the work done with the children during the year and void situations of neglect and street and at the same time give young people the opportunity to have a vacation.

¡Fira de Barcelona joins Worldcoo community!

“Fight against invisible inequality” is the first project they will collaborate with

Sala de ordenadores para uso escolar

logo-vector-fira-barcelonaToday we’re very happy to reveal the name of our new social partner. Fira de Barcelona has started to collaborate with us in order to fund social and cooperation projects!

Now, the organization offers the opportunity to add one extra euro each time attendants will buy an online ticket for some of their events.

The first one is the “Saló de l’Ensenyament”, an academic meeting for students, teachers and education centres which occurs once in a year and it’s very useful to inform about the current academic offer in Spain.

logo-adsis-web_3The first social project which they will start collaborate comes from Fundación Adsis, an organization that pursues the challenge of building a more equal and social with the integral promotion of people and groups that are excluded and at risk of social exclusion.

Attendees will help young people, like them, to have equal education opportunities, an important challenge if we consider that in Spain 6 out of 30 teenagers in a classroom are facing economic difficulties that will condition their future.         

The socioeconomic situation of some children and adolescents condition their educational development. 31% of young people at risk of social exclusion do not have internet access from home, and 42% do not have enough tranquillity at home to study and do their homework.

Through this project, Fundación Adsis may provide Access and guidance in the use of digital tools to 50 adolescents who are at risk of social exclusion, accompaniment in school reinforcement and training in ICT (Information and Communication Technologies).

International Day of the Girl

Today, October 11th, we join the celebration of the International Day of the Girl, a day to claim gender equality, women’s Access to their universal right and eliminate discrimination and violence against women. According to ONU Women, it is estimated that 35% of women worldwide   suffer violence and every day more than 39.000 girls are forced to get married and leave school

because-im-a-girlLuckily, there are thousands of initiatives that help to eradicate this situation. One of them is the one we launched in the context of this day with Nicequest.Because I’m a Girl” is the name of the campaign led by the NGO Plan International, founded with the aim of achieve gender equality and their empowerment through education.

We want to achieve that 140 girls affected by the conflict in Southern Sudan, -most of them teenagers with kids between 12 and 18 years old- have access to alternative quality education in a safe and socially cohesive environment.

Through the participation of the users of Nicequest, these girls will able to do a course of accelerated learning and facilitate their stay through the distribution of different hygiene kits and taking care of their children in a nearby nursery. You can follow the project HERE.

Moreover, in the context of this day, Plan International has presented “Counting the invisible girls”, “a report that, according to the NGO, “explores the current state of gender data and exposes the gaps: we don’t count how many girls leave school because of early marriage, pregnancy or violence, exactly how many give birth before they turn 15, how many hours a day they spend working, what kind of work they do and whether they get paid for it”.

From here, we encourage you to join this day and help us to ensure girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive.

The schooling of 120 kids in Tuum (Kenia)

Tuum is a small village located at approximately 500 km north from Nairobi. It is an isolated place, arid and of difficult access. The minimum services of health and education are not available to the population. There is only one public primary school and the kindergarten has opened its doors to children under 6 who, before that, wandered around the fields carelessly.

Thanks of the collaboration of more than 800 users of Zacaris, the NGO Active Africa has achieved the schooling of 120 kids (from 3 to 5 years old) from Samburu and Turkana tribes.

Here the complete report!

For the education of 140 girls

capclaera_plan

#NewProject

because-im-a-girlOctober 11 is the International Day of the Girl Child; in this context, Nicequest users join the global campaign “Because I am a Girl”, initiative that Plan International launches with the aim of achieve equality for girls and their empowerment through their right to education.

In South Sudan, only a small part of primary school children attend school, and in the case of girls, the number is further reduced by the fact that is traditionally conceived that girls have to marry and have children at an earlier age, so the education is not the priority.

logo_planThis situation is what has led to Plan International to develop an Accelerated Learning Program at private government schools to promote access to schooling for teenagers with kids and girls who are between 12 and 18 years old. That program is aimed to promote education and facilitate the retention of girls in this courses through different initiatives, such as the distribution of hygiene kits among attendees or caring for children in a nursery near the school.

Through the participation of the users of Nicequest, we will be able to help 140 girls to have access to alternative quality education in a safe and socially cohesive environment.
