Skate-aid is a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive youth welfare through the educational power of skateboarding.

Since its foundation in 2009 by skateboard pioneer Titus Dittmann, skate-aid has been implementing projects for disadvantaged children and young people worldwide. In addition, they provide orientation, contribute to gender equality and enable an increase in self-esteem and community awareness, personal responsibility and determination.


The skateparks and the skateboards are the necessary tools to provide sustainable support through the workshops. The kids learn to get back up after they have fallen down. This strengthens their personality and takes away their fear to face new challenges later in life. skate-aid’s mission: We empower kids!

Description

The number of refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea is increasing daily. With Yukan you can help Open Arms to rescue the people that need their help and to battle against the lack of human rights on the water.

Project

More than a year and a half ago, the largest shipwreck in history occurred in the Mediterranean Sea, with more than 800 people missing. Just one year later, within a week, more than 1.000 people have disappeared in multiple shipwrecks. We cannot allow this to happen again.

Open Arms has a boat that has been converted into a medical rescue and surveillance boat. The organization needs a team of professionals and volunteers to help prevent further deaths in the international waters of the Mediterranean.

Organisation

Proactiva Open Arms is a nongovernmental and non-profit organisation whose mission is to rescue refugees from the sea as they reach Europe while fleeing war-torn countries, persecution and poverty. The organisation was started by a lifeboat rescue company with vast experience in safety along the Spanish coastline.

A WARM MEAL FOR EVERY CHILD OF THE ARCHE

58%

1600h

Description

Together with Yukan you can support the Arc, where the children have as well as a wide variety of help and leisure activities including sport, games and music they also receive a free warm meal.

Project

A warm meal does not belong to the daily life in so many families. Therefore at the Arche the children’s daily time begins with a free, warm lunch. The healthy , wholesome and balanced diet at the Arche establishes an important share of a reliable and unburdened daily structure.

The meal that they eat together is a time to engage in conversation with the children and to nourish relationships. They experience an atmosphere where they feel welcome and at home. With the colleagues at the Arche there is always a sympathetic ear for the children to talk about either their frustration or enthusiasm that they feel.

Organisation

The Arche fights against child poverty in Germany. Through their facilities they offer the children a free, wholesome, warm meal, and breakfast at the schools. They also provide tutoring and useful leisure activities with sport, games, music and above all interest as children need confirmation for their self confidence. They need to feel important and loved. Many children in this country experience this far too seldom. The employees at the Arche recognise and encourage the potential of their visitors. The three pillars stand for respect, sustainability and love.

Sea animals and in particular mammals such as whales, dolphins and seals are exposed to many dangers. In addition to waste pollution, direct hunting or the danger of ending up as fishing by-catch, the constantly increasing underwater noise levels pose an enormous problem. This is caused, for example, by oil and gas drilling, increasing shipping traffic or military sonar waves.

Through educational events and campaigns, Project Blue Sea informs and gives the animals a voice.

Organisation

Project Blue Sea e.V. is based in Herne/North Rhine-Westphalia and has been operating for around twenty years to protect the oceans and sea creatures. The project also works internationally together with other organisations. Main issues are: Protection against climate change, littering, over-fertilisation from agriculture, oil spills, underwater noise and contaminated waste.

The project also deals with animal welfare issues such as whaling and seal hunting. The team consists of volunteers who are passionate about achieving something positive for the oceans and their inhabitants.

„Bjossi“ belongs to the Bärenherz- Family since the beginning of the year and completes the supply of pet therapy in the children’s hospital Bärenherz in Wiesbaden. With his quiet and loving manner he supports the sick children and their brothers and sisters: when he carefully makes contact with his soft nose, he conjures up a smile on the children’s lips and allows them sometimes to forget about the difficult daily life. Bjössi, whose name means”bear cub” in Icelandic provides the children with faith, strength and zest for life. The dear gelding has a fine instinct and reacts to even the smallest instructions of the trainer. Therefore making it possible for the sick children as well as their siblings to come to the riding lessons and the hours of therapy as well as feeling his bright, soft and warm skin and also his gentle walk.

Organisation

The Wiesbaden Bärenherz Charity supports families whose child is sick and will die. The family lives the time of the illness and farewell of the child very intensively and extremely closely. This requires an endless amount of energy from all family members. In both Bärenherz children’s hospitals the families will also be accompanied from the time of the diagnosis until the death of the child. The sick children have qualified nursing and loving care and the parents and all family members of the child receive understanding, closeness, help and comfort. Therefore many hands are needed… the nurses, the pedagogical team, the pastoral work, the people who accompany the siblings, the music and physiotherapists, doctors and many, many more. They contribute security, support and strength towards the accompanying children and their families. Therefore the Bärenherz Charity is dependent on donations.
