For this year 2021, Minyons Escoltes i Guies de Catalunya, a youth educational organization in Catalonia, Spain, have decided to contribute the 1% of their own fundraising corresponding to the 2019/2020 course (€4,973.40) to two projects, both born to fight the impact of the Covid-19 pandemics. The entity issued a call for public tender in order to allocate the money to global justice projects created by associations and entities from outside their own organization.
Within the frame of this call, the jury has decided to divide that 1% between two projects, one of which is from be artsy. Thanks a lot, Minyons Escoltes i Guies de Catalunya! We have already spoken about this project to you: “Masks for Health 2021”. It is about doing reusable masks workshops in the Achham district, in West Nepal, where we mainly work, creating paid jobs for local women to facilitate their autonomy. It has also included giving out soap, and providing information plus raising awareness, helping thus the people in 17 villages to be more protected against the Covid-19.
The amount received has been €1,440, at it has been a great help! We congratulate from be artsy the other project, “Senders” (“Trails”), from the Tapís Association in the city of Vic, Catalonia: assistance with social and employment integration, with incentives, addressed to young people at risk of social exclusion, now aggravated due to the health emergency.
These types of collaborations do really make a difference! Thanks very much!
