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.

Combat elders loneliness and isolation in summer

Miles of elders confront with loneliness and the isolation in our country. The disappearance of a loved one, an illness or loss of mobility are factors that driving elders to an unwanted loneliness.

In Spain, there are a million and a half elders that are living alone. According to some studies, the 59% of elders feel theirselves alone and, this fact causes a feeling of insecurity, sadness and depression.

In summer, heat weaken the physical state and the absence of neighbors intensify the isolation of this elders and also the feeling of loneliness.

To combat this situation, the Federación Amigos de los Mayores, has created a special program Vacaciones Amigas” that aims elders to leave their homes, enjoy with workshops and activities for few weeks and establish new friendships with other old people that are in the same situation.
