Babadea's founder and creative director is very committed to social work and participates in volunteer projects in Kenya, Peru and Cambodia.
BABADEA permanent annual donations:
- Kenya: Cara Girls Rescue and Empowerment Center - Ngong. Masai Mara Community Girls' Rescue Center and Orphanage founded in 2008 and funded only by donations from volunteers. The girls live in a very precarious situation but they are very happy and it is incredible how they take care of each other. The center is run by a Kenyan family, Edwina and Timothy, with their children, and they are supported by social workers who manage the rescue of the girls and take them to the center. With our last donation we made a kitchen, bought two goats so they could have milk, we adapted a room to fit more girls and we solved many particular needs of each one of them (glasses to see, shoes of her size ...). Also in Babadea we are very happy because we teach them to sew and they are giving it continuity!
- Peru: Santa Clara School - Iquitos. This project ensures the education of 40 boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 15 from a village of 900 people that is in the middle of nowhere in the Amazon jungle, a town without electricity, which can be reached in two hours by boat by the Amazon. The children work in the fields to help their families, but thanks to Andrea and Pía, in the afternoons they go to school to learn to read, write, add ... and a lot of things about the outside world that everyone is unaware of. It is a fantastic project with a great impact on the community. With our latest donation we helped Denis, a wonderful boy with multiple sclerosis, and bought supplies for the school.
- Cambodia: 30 minutes by tuk tuk or bike from the city of Battambang, Kamnat and his wife, known to all as Mamma, have set up a school that all the children in the area attend on their bicycles every day, although rain down! AKD school is only supported by volunteers, who teach English to children so they can build a future in the tourism sector, which is booming in this country. Our last donation allowed us to build 3 more classrooms for the school, since the corrugated roofs they have now are unsafe and unsanitary, when it rains so much the classes are flooded.
These are the projects visited with which we will continue working actively and you can collaborate with them through Babadea! You can follow us on INSTAGRAM: babadea_ to be part of the use of donations.
€ 5 euros for each purchase greater than € 100 and € 2 for each purchase of lesser amount, they go to these three projects equally.
Hopefully very soon we can allocate even a little more!
And if you are thinking of an activist experience, we encourage you to visit these centers, we can even put you in touch with them! It's a great and helpful experience.
Let's make the world a little better than we found it!
