Therapy dogs with children with autism

capcelera_bocalán

Those who follow us on social network, may know that Mascoteros has recently funded its last project, which has helped Jadoul Foundation to feed 170 homeless dogs during one month and a half.  You can remember the project HERE.

It is not the first time that Mascoteros customers show their social commitment when making their purchases. In fact, to date, its customers have raised close to € 10,000. Thanks to them, 4 social entities could start up their projects related to the animal world

Now, they initiate a new challenge so that children with autism (or Autism Spectrum Disorder) can carry out their therapy together with dogs, something that will increase their motivation and, consequently, the results of the therapy they follow.

bocalan_logoThey will do it together with Bocalán Foundation, an entity characterized by the inclusion of animals within therapeutic or educational processes with different groups that allow greater participation.

And it is that, often, people with autism show alterations in communication and social interaction, causing them difficulties in relating and understanding social behaviors, as well as difficulties in the language. Dogs help to capture the attention of children and encourages their participation in therapy by being a living being that moves, has different textures, smells and interacts directly with them.

 The challenge of the Mascoteros clients will be to obtain the necessary capital so that 10 children with autism can benefit from the assisted therapy with dogs for 4 months.

Art and youth labor insertion

As you know, since some months, Ticketmaster offer their customers the option to donate one social euro when they buy their tickets and collaborate with social causes; each one, one different.

vocesThis may, Ticketmaster will collaboratw with Voces Foundation in order to facilitate the labor insertion of young people at risk of social exclusion through art.

Nobody better than Ticketmaster to attest that culture is a tool of social cohesion that stimulates citizen participation, generates opportunities for economic development and for the reduction of poverty.

In that sense, Voces Foundation takes culture as a basis for social change and it’s committed to improving the socio-personal and professional positioning of young people at risk.

The objective is to offer social and professional training through creative tools and written expression.

This is an extremely important challenge if we take into account that, according to the INE, in Spain more than 40% of people under 25 are unemployed.

Training of women as bicycle technicians

capcelera_santafixie

Santafixie-GroupWe have spoken many times of Santa Fixie Group’s continued commitment to the use of bicycles as a tool for social and labor inclusion. Through their latest funded project, they have managed to get 25 children and young people from Palmarín (Senegal) to go to school thanks to the delivery of multiple bicycles (you can remember the project HERE).

Now, through Maya Pedal, they present us with a new concept of bicycles: bicimachines, an ecological alternative that proposes to replace motors that consume electricity or petroleum derivatives.

mp_logoMaya Pedal is an organization that works to improve the conditions of Guatemalan families, while at the same time contributing in each of their actions to the environment. The entity is a pioneer in the creation of bi-machines, which are driven with the force of pedals, through human propulsion.

They are machines that use the power of pedaling to drive “appliances”, such as blenders, washing machines, water pumps… No need for electricity. So they are a good tool to support the family economy.

In addition, since they are built by hand in the Maya Pedal workshop, they are also a very good opportunity to access the labor market. This is the goal of this campaign: to raise the amount needed to train adolescents who have left school so that they can work as bicycle and bicycle mechanic techniques.

All the euros collected by Santa Fixie will enable the entity to train 30 teenagers between 14 and 19 in San Andrés Itzapa (Guatemala) as bicycle and bicycle repair techniques, which will allow them to enter the labor market.

At the same time they will be able to do specialized consultations to about 90 patients and operate to 45

Help homeless dogs not go hungry

 

cap_eng_mascoterosToday we want to share with you the history of Bombón, a young dog that appeared at the beginning of last November in one of the refuges of the Jadoul Foundation  in a state of clear neglect.

A friend of the Foundation saw her and brought her directly to one of the centers of the  Jadoul Foundation in Cheste (Valencia).

“When Bombón arrived at the centre, the scenario was terrible” – Maria tells us, responsible of fundraising in Jadoul Foundation.  “We took her to the vet and they did several tests. She had a leishmania that had manifested cutaneous and due to the neglect and non-treatment of the disease, had affected the dog very aggressively. They prescribed special food, in addition to their medications, and special bathrooms to recover the skin and hair.

logo_1346From the first minute the dog proved to be an authentic sweetness, a real bonbon (hence its name). He allowed himself to do everything, and only had to endure the stinging when you healed her and stabbed you with a look of thanks when you finished. It broke our hearts. But as always, these furry ones we love so much do not give up, and she struggled and improved to become the preciousness that is now“, he adds.

Now, Bombón is a very nice dog, supper affectionate and, in the refuge of the Foundation she lives with many other dogs that, like her, look for a home.

After collecting the necessary funds so that 100 companuin animals of homeless people can have veterinary assistance, now the customers of Mascoteros will collaborate with Jadoul Foundation to help the 170 animals that, like Bombón, the Foundation host in order to ensure veterinary assistance and basic care.

Thanks to the amount that Mascoteros collect, Bombón and 170 more dogs will have food insured for a month and a half.
