What is it?

Yukan, the App that encourages you to disconnect the mobile to connect with social projects that help to improve the World.

The revolution of new technologies has changed the world! With your mobile and Internet you can communicate with your friends and family in just a second –even if they are thousand miles away; send pictures, get all kind of information, buy and sell, listen to music, watch videos, play games...
A real revolution!

Did you know that young people spend an average of 9 hours a day* connected to their mobiles?

* Common Sense (2015)

Yukan suggests you to take a break and disconnect your mobile phone. With your time off, you can contribute to social causes that help building a better World.

Because, while you're in your digital world the real world keeps on moving, and not always in a fair and equal direction for everyone.

There are many foundations, corporations and associations that invest effort, time and money in social projects to reduce these differences and injustices.

You can also contribute to carry out those social projects; you just need to disconnect your mobile phone for a while every day.

With the Yukan app you can choose in which social project you want to invest your time off. And so, while contributing to social causes, you can take a break to read, study or chill with your friends.

Description

Con Yukan puedes ayudar al mantenimiento del pony islandés Bjössi como terapia de consuelo en el hospicio para niños Bärenherz de Wiesbaden. Bjössi transmite confianza, fuerza y alegría de vivir a los niños enfermos.

Project

Desde principios de año, el caballo islandés "Bjössi" es el nuevo miembro de la familia Bärenherz y complementa la oferta de terapia animal en el hospicio de Bärenherz en Wiesbaden. Con su naturaleza tranquila y amorosa, apoya a los niños enfermos y a sus hermanos: cuando se acerca cautelosamente con su nariz suave, fascina a los niños con una sonrisa en los labios y les permite olvidar su dura vida cotidiana. Bjössi, cuyo nombre significa "oso" en islandés, le da a los niños confianza, fortaleza y entusiasmo por la vida. El querido caballo tiene una gran sensibilidad y reacciona a las mínimas indicaciones del entrenador. Tanto los niños enfermos como sus hermanos pueden asistir a las sesiones de equitación y terapia, sentir su suave y cálido pelaje y su manso caminar.

Organisation

La fundación Bärenherz de Wiesbaden apoya a las familias cuyos hijos tienen una enfermedad que les acortará la vida y morirán. La enfermedad en sí y la despedida es para toda la familia una experiencia muy intensa y muy cercana que requiere de una fuerza infinita. En los dos hospicios para niños patrocinados por Bärenherz se acompaña a las familias desde el momento del diagnóstico hasta la muerte del niño y más allá. Aquí, los niños enfermos encuentran atención calificada y afectuosa y los padres y todos los miembros de la familia un entorno de comprensión, cercanía, ayuda y consuelo. Se necesitan para ello muchas manos: los cuidadores, el equipo pedagógico, los servicios religiosos, los acompañantes de los hermanos, la música y los musico- y fisioterapeutas, los médicos y muchos, muchos otros. Todos ayudan a garantizar que los niños y sus familias puedan experimentar seguridad, apoyo y empoderamiento. Para ello, la Fundación Bärenherz se basa en donaciones.

Disconnect your mobile phone and support this group of hopeful dreamers who want to reach as many young people as possible who aspire for scholarships to pursue their education.

Project

Due to a lack of resources in Nepal, many young people cannot continue their studies after school. For this reason, Nepal Sonríe has set up a Project called “Proyecto de Mayores”, which is for kids in their late teens or early twenties. The aim is to provide scholarships to cover their education costs to allow them to pursue their studies. Beneficiaries sign an agreement in which they commit to obtaining good results, to being involved in their studies and to supporting or contributing to the NGO should the need arise. The aim of the contract is to establish a relationship of mutual cooperation and relinquishment of a monetary charity. This programme covers: maintenance, accommodation, administration and registration fees as well as any other costs directly related to their education, such as study materials or transport.

Organisation

Nepal Sonríe is a nongovernmental development organization whose goal is cooperation in order to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in Hetauda, Nepal.

This shelter house welcomes national or immigrant prisoners who may or may not have children under their charge. Women can visit the house with a release on license or while on parole, and by doing so they stay in touch with society and can prepare for the changes that will face them when they are released from prison. This project not only works on empowerment and equality, but also on solidarity.

Organisation

Prolibertas is a nonprofit foundation whose goals are to fight against social exclusion by supporting people who need help yet lack the resources to find solutions.
