El Corte Ingles

Children’s precariousness has been the cause that it has moved to two large companies as the brand of decoration and textile IKEA and El Corte Ingles to unite to tackle the problem of lack of schooling for millions of African children in collaboration with Unicef and the Nelson Mandela Institute, whose objective is the literacy of eight million children in eleven countries in Africa by the year 2013. Currently, one of every three African children does not come to the school in the zone sub-Saharan, being relegated to the ostracism of poverty and discrimination. In this sense, the schools for Africa initiative carries out work of building of infrastructure, ensuring children’s development in the right environment, allowing, in addition, access to other basic needs such as drinking water and hygiene or kitchen. To help in all this generation of schools and supply work, IKEA will collaborate with schools for Africa by donating, between 15 August and 15 September, the amount of one euro for each product who places his series of furniture children’s Mammut. El Corte Ingles, for its part, will ask its clients, in collaboration with Unicef, the donation of one euro for every purchase made in their stores as part of a campaign called I + Unicef = education for all.
