Dreivip, one of our e-commerce with cause, has finished his last project. Thanks to them, NGO Mumbai Smiles will be able to educate 30 children under 6 years old and prevent them from falling into exploitation networks. If you want, you can remember the project HERE.

Its next challenge, which starts today, is to end child malnutrition in Spain, a very important purpose if we consider that today more than 2.6 million Spanish children are at risk of poverty and social exclusion. Since the beginning of the crisis, the risk of poverty has increased to 33,4%.

Educo will give new dining scholarships

In early September the NGO Educo informed us about the increase of grandparents that had provided economic aids to their sons and grandchildren. Specifically, the 80% of the grandparents had given an average of 290€ per month as an economic aid to assist their families.

According to Educo with INE data, the 57% of grandparents explains that their  personal and welfare situation are getting worst because of the economic difficulties that their family are suffering, as more than 700.000 families had no income the first trimester 2015, this data are almost the double than 2007.

For this reason and concurring with the new school year, Educo began a new scholarship dining campaign with the aim to give support to families in need and to guarantee that children from families facing economic hardship receive a least one meal a day.

The alliance between Educo and Redcoon continues and, from the beginning of September, the clients of Redcoon have been making donations to help all the children living at risk of poverty.

One more time, Redcoon customers have demonstrated that they want to finish with childrens poverty. Thanks to their solidarity, 6.000€ have been raised with whom 2.400 healthy and equilibrated meals will be provided to different Spanish schools.

Many Spanish households have big difficulties to makes ends meet. Many families only eat meat, chicken or fish every two days and this fact hurt the children growth living in these homes.

Educo’s dining scholarships will guarantee a healthy daily meal to all the children living in a poverty situation and also help the situation of the children family. Moreover, this kind of grants have additional benefits to those children who couldn’t access to their school lunchrooms. It is proven that afternoon absenteeism is reduced by 100% and helps improve school performance and boost self-esteem. Furthermore, increase the time children spend in a safe, warm, comfortable and protective environment.

To continue helping the maximum number of children living at poverty situation, Redcoon will continue raising funds. Thanks to the collaboration of its clients, Educo will be able to provide more dining scholarships and thus eliminate the malnutrition that many Spanish children are suffering and, at the same time, Educo help them to increase their school performance and their self-esteem.

Thanks to Redcoon and its clients for their solidarity and for continue helping to fight against childrens poverty in Spain.

#NewProject: Summer Lunch Program

Summer is coming and with it school holidays. Most of children are happy with this moment but, for others, this fact means that they will not have their lunch scholarship and, therefore, without their healthy daily meal.

In Spain, there are thousand children that have a poor alimentation because of their family have serious financial difficulties and have no money to buy food. Thanks to Educo and his School Lunchroom Programs, most of this children have the opportunity to receive a healthy daily meat.

With the arrival of summer, most of schools close their doors and, consequently, they also close their lunchroom. One of the Educo mission is that all children have the opportunity to receive a healthy daily meal, for that reason, Educo has expanded his program to summer camps.

Educo will be present in 57 summer entities and schools of all of autonomous communities in order for children that are at risk of living in poverty, apart from doing socio-educational activities they will also receiving quality food at least once a day.

Redcoon wants to help Educo to make this project possible. Thanks to their users, they will ensure a healthy and balanced daily meal to children whose families are at risk of social exclusion and will also ensure an opportunity to participate in socio-educational activities in summer entities.

This year, half of Spanish children will not be able to go away on holidays. For that reason, the fact that, thanks to summer lunch program, they can participate in educational and recreational activities that includes a healthy meal, will be essential to have a full development.

3.216 healthy meals will be distributed among children at risk of poverty and/or social exclusion

Nowadays there are more than 30% of children live at risk or poverty and/or social exclusion, it means that 1 in 3 children in Spain are malnourished and not receive one balanced meal a day.

The bad alimentation not only affects in the child physical development, it also affects in his school performance. Before this situation of vulnerability, Educo in 2013 launched a school lunchroom program in 17 autonomous communities to reach the maximum of children who are in family with financial difficulties.

With Educo Spring-School lunchroom program and thanks to Redcoon users, a scholarship will be given to children at risk of poverty and /or social school.

#NewProject: Children & Family support in Spain

There is an estimated 700,000 families in Spain with either less than 600€ a month or no income at all. According to AROPE (At Risk Of Poverty and/or Exclusion) an European index, 29.2% of Spanish people are at risk of poverty or exclusion and, consequently, 35% of children lives are affected in these low-income households.

Unfortunately, children are those who suffer most in this situation, both physically and mentally. Ildefonso Hernández, president of SEPAS says that “inadequate nutrition and this discriminatory social situation are associated with mental problems and increase risk of meningitis or other infectious disease, also in mid- to long term inadequate nutrition is associated to metabolic disorders like diabetes or cardiovascular problems, finally, poor nutrition is linked to cognitive development in children”.

In light of this situation, Ayuda en Acción has developed a new program to help families overcome these problems in Spain, this program is called Children & Family Support with the aim to improve, in conjunction with schools, the living condition of families who are in vulnerable situations due to the economic crisis.

With this program, Ayuda en Acción goal is to cover the school children’s needs in 30 schools that are in 8 different communities through scholarships for dining, school supplies, extracurricular activities and educational support activities.

Thanks to this project, Zacaris customers will contribute by helping 2 students to have the chance to have a guaranteed annual scholar lunchroom. With this fact, you not only help 1 child to increase their physical and mental performance, you also help their family to know that their child is guaranteed a diary healthy food.

[Funded] Scholarship for an International Master of Peace

We are glad to announce you that the project Let’s have one more is now completely raised!

A student from an impoverished country will be welcome soon at the Universitat Jaume I for a two years Master of Peace.

This project has been started because some budget cuts reached the education and the cooperation with the economic crisis. During all the campaign, we have been surprised by the incredible energy engaged by the department of the Peace Master to raise funds. Also, we are really glad to see that donors came from all over the world.

Morover, Worldcoo funded his first project, it is also a success for us because we proved that our platform is operational. We hope that this funded project is the first of a long list to come!

Again, thank you to all our generous donors and all the people who have been a part of the organization of the project. We will now keep you tuned about the construction of the project. You will find on this blog a follow up until the end of the course of that student.

The project Let’s have one more, which consist in getting funds to pay for a scholarship to form an ambassador of peace is about to reach the objective.

As you can see, it passed 80% of the final goal and less than 1000€ still need to be collected. More than 130 donators from more than 15 countries arround the world have already been committed with the project.

If we divide the money collected by the number of donors and then, divide the money we need by the average donation, it means that around 25 donors are missing yet to end the collect.

With all we did until today, we can easily say that we passed the hardest part. But the final straight line is still in front of us!
