The last data related with the child poverty are still worrying and that is a 35,4% of children living in Spain living at risk of poverty and at risk of social exclusion. In other words, one in three children live at risk of poverty and at risk of social exclusion.
By the end of 2013 was born, by the hand of Ayuda en Acción, the Program of Support to childhood and their families in Spain in order to give a response to all Spanish children that had been affected by the consequences of the crisis and the cuts in aids and in the education of children.
During the 2013-2014 school year, from Ayuda en Acción could support directly 1.700 Spanish children (7.500 children were supported indirectly). Ayuda en Acción provided scholarships lunchroom, scholarships for books and teaching materials and scholarships for excursions and school support in 21 schools in Spain. One year later, they duplicated the number of children who was benefiting directly thanks to the project and Ayuda en Acción gave support to children from 31 schools in Madrid, Valencia, Aragon, Cataluña, Galicia, Islas Baleares, Asturias and Andalucía.
In the current school year, the aim of Ayuda en Acción is to benefit directly 5.00 children and benefit indirectly more than 11.000 children in 37 schools from Madrid, Valencia, Aragón, Cataluña, Galicia, Baleares, País Vasco, Asturias y Andalucía.
To achieve this aim, Ayuda en Acción will deepen in the innovation line of education and, in view of the seriousness of the unemployment situation in Spain, they will also increase workshops of employability to generate new opportunities that help the families to leave situation of vulnerability in which they live.
