How can you help? 

We suggest you join as a member, giving a donation, enrolling in our volunteer programmes or participating in the campaigns we promote either individually or collectively.

Another very useful way of collaborating is to be well informed on our reality, the causes of unequal situations and injustice and communicating that access to education abolishes unequal situations and transforms vulnerable realities.

 

Entreculturas close to you

Entreculturas, in its belief in volunteer work as a source for change, tries to channel the population’s solidarity through its presence in the majority of the Spanish Provinces, offering a space for participation and mobilization.

During 2005, Entreculturas has been present in A Coruña, Alicante, Almería, Burgos, Ciudad Real, Córdoba, Elche, Gijón, Granada, Huelva, La Palma, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, León, Logroño, Madrid, Málaga, Murcia, Oviedo, Palencia, Salamanca, Santander, Sevilla, Tenerife, Toledo, Valencia, Valladolid, Vigo and Zaragoza.

 

Do we have network initiatives?

We are firm believers in networking with other social agents as enrichment both in thinking processes and in the impact of projects and promoted activities.

We work in close collaboration with Alboan and other Spanish Development NGOs. We belong to the Xavier Network (European NGOs network closely related to the Society of Jesus).

We support joint Campaigns with the Spanish DNGO Coordinator, regional and local coordinators and with the
REDES Platform. We are members of the Global Campaign for Education, the Spanish Coalition to end the Use of Soldier Children and the “No doubt, no debt” campaign.

Our_accounts

Our accounts

In Entreculturas we are making a major effort in order to increase donations from members or donors who wish to share our project.

During the year 2005, 49% of our funds have been raised by our contributors and there are increasingly more people who support our work in a continuous way, convinced that the real commitment for development cannot be the result of responding by impulses to concrete actions.

The other donations received come from public entities such as the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECI) through the Education and Development Programme for Latin America and other institutions such as the municipalities and regional governments. 93, 4% of total funds received have been used in projects in the South and for development aid education and social awareness education in the North.

How do we control the actual distribution of our funds?

All our accounts are audited by an external audit firm on an annual basis which is included in this report.

The audit for the year 2005 has been done by BDO Audiberia. In addition, Fundación Lealtad analyzes the degree of transparency we have.

For the year 2005, this Foundation’s report has established once again that we comply with all the required maximums. Finally, all donor institutions control the final destination of their contributions and make their own evaluation of our joint projects.

Our counterparts in the South 

  our_counterparts

Our main counterparts in America and Africa are the popular education movement Fe y Alegría and the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS). The quality and seriousness of their work has been proved for decades.

Entreculturas
is one of the members of the Fe y Alegría network, one of the most relevant worldwide educational organizations with 1.200.000 students in 17 countries. The JRS promotes education in the very difficult environment of the refugee camps and displaced populations as a consequence of the many armed conflicts, unstable political situations and natural catastrophes that take place nowadays.

 

Why is the lack of education a priority problem? 

759 million adult people world wide do not have the basic knowledge in reading, writing and calculation More than 67 million children do not have access to school and this limitation will determine their lives.

We think education is a key tool in order to reduce the vulnerable position of millions of people in the world. The education we believe in, enables job opportunities, self esteem and social awareness for change.

 

What do we do in Spain? 

 A change of conscience in the north is the key to end the unfair international relations.  We carry out campaigns on education, communication and research to make the Spanish society aware that education is essential for development.

We also work on public advocacy in order to make governments meet their international commitments for a world with more justice. In 2004, we were named representatives of the Development NGOs in the Development Council together with four other organisations.

Our work in Spain is possible thanks to the efforts and enthusiasm of hundreds of volunteers who make this objective a worthy cause of self engagement.

 

What do we do in the South? 

We aim for education to reach the largest number of people but always improving its quality and aimed at social change. For this purpose, we support initiatives that promote the education for the less favoured in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

We not only carry out specific projects but we also accompany educational programmes and procedures. Education and community promotion are complementary in advancing towards civic, labour and social participation and democratic behaviour.

Building classrooms, educating teachers, supporting radio based education programmes, labour skill training centres or promoting education in refugee camps are among the activities we carry out.
