Yvette left her mark

Some people’s hearts are so big, it's a wonder they fit in their chest

Some people’s hearts are so big, it's a wonder they fit in their chest. As in the case of our collaborators, and as in the case of Yvette, which reminds of us this fact every day. Yvette collaborated with Educo for over 15 years. She sponsored Virgilio from the Philippines and Milagros from Peru throughout their primary school years and left part of her legacy to Educo so that she could continue to leave her mark of solidarity. It is a privilege to share here the lovely words her children dedicated to her.

Our mother was born in 1927 in Nantes, in French Brittany, and was raised by her grandmother, who she loved dearly. She had a hard childhood due to her family’s economic situation and to the historical climate of the times.

When World War II ended, she moved to Paris, where she met Adolfo. They were married in 1948 before moving to Madrid to take over Adolfo's family business. It was in this Spanish city that the rest of her life took shape. She raised a family of five children and died in peace on December 20, 2013 at the age of 86.

In our memory, our mother was always involved in volunteering activities: as an aide in a hospital, in soup kitchens, reading to hospitalized children… She was particularly concerned about children, especially girls, who did not have access to an education and who missed out on the chance to fully and independently grow and integrate in society.

This is why we believe (since she did not boast of her collaboration) she collaborated with Educo; her collaboration had much to do with what she lived through in her own childhood. She must have felt that Educo was a most suitable way to fulfill her desire to help.

On occasion she received a drawing made by one of the children in the communities that received the help that she gladly gave to Educo. And these, of course, moved her, although she did not need them to know that she was doing the right thing. But they did show her that her contributions were indeed being received where they were needed. And this filled her with a sense of satisfaction.

That is why we, her children, fully respect her decision to leave a bequest to Educo and to contribute, albeit modestly, to helping it continue its work. And we are so proud that our mother has held fast to her beliefs and values, which led her to help where she felt it was most needed.
Thank you for everything you do, in our name and, above all, on behalf of our mother.

Albert and Patrick

Para un solidario y Joven octogenario

El gesto de Juan simplemente demuestra quién era, lo que pensaba y lo que sentía

Juan León Rodríguez was an Educo sponsor for thirteen years, from 199 to 2012. Following his death, his wife, Isabel Bohórquez Quirós, continued the sponsorship for another year. Juan wished to bequeath a part of his estate to be used to help children.  And that's exactly what he did. Many boys and girls are benefitting from his legacy, a gesture of solidarity that is both timeless and priceless. 
Juan was born on December 5, 1922 in Ubrique, Cadiz. His friends and family told us of his humble beginnings and how these, coupled with a disability in his right hand and a need to find a livelihood, awakened in him an entrepreneurial spirit that would last a lifetime.
Destiny took him from Ubrique to Ronda, a populous tourist city in the province of Malaga.   “Life in Ronda was tough for him at first. He suffered great economic and emotional hardship", his friends told us. “There he embarked on his life’s pursuit, the porcelain and gift business”. He opened a store which, fueled by his "tireless, savvy, level-headed and unwavering dedication and sacrifice", blossomed years later into a prosperous business which enabled him to forge his legacy.
Juan’s never-ending curiosity and desire to better himself always drove him to learn something new. At 87, he learned how to use computers and continued to read the biographies of those people who he considered role models. He had always admired people with strong moral and ethical principles and who were dedicated to helping others. “In all fairness, we could say that even in his final days he was a youthful octogenarian", said his family and friends.
His family always supported him, especially his wife, Isabel, and his brother, Miguel, a priest whose dedication to the most in need inspired a great sense of pride in Juan. “Juan also adored his grandmother for the love and tenderness that she had always shown him, and her photo was ever-present in his home", they told us.
Knowing him, Juan’s family and friends attributed his long-standing collaboration with Educo to “the NGO's programs and earnestness in carrying them out. Juan’s gesture simply shows who he was, the way he thought and what he felt”. 


Con la verdad por delante

For over 15 years, Elisa was an Educo sponsor, until she passed away two years ago. Throughout this time, she sponsored several children and showed her concern for the wellbeing of children around the world. So much so, that she wanted to leave a legacy so that her solidarity would live on. Thanks to the people close to her, we were able to learn a little more about Elisa and share what we learned with you.

Elisa was born in Lierganes, in Santander Province, on August 4, 1929, although she lived nearly her entire life in Madrid.
Her friends describe her as a sincere person. “She was a woman who really valued truth". She was generous and disinterested and spared no effort when it came to helping others. Her friends knew that they could always count on her.
They also tell us that she was a “hard worker, social assistance and nurse in the public health system" and that she poured herself into her work. She enjoyed caring for the ill.
Religious and reserved, she never hesitated in helping those in need; at the same time, she never felt the need to make a show of her acts of solidarity, which is why many didn't know the extent of her generosity until her death.
Here, we modestly share Elisa's memory in tribute to her generosity and in gratitude for her gestures and those of all of our collaborators.


“Una persona buena” Libertad siempre destacó por “un elevado sentido del civismo con los demás”

Libertad Alcaide had been an Educo sponsor for nearly 15 years, between 1998 and 2013, when she finalized her collaboration due to old age and illness. Still, we always kept the neediest in mind and that is why she chose to continue to support our projects by including Educo in her last will and testament. Libertad left us in April 2015, but her footprint of solidarity lives on.

Libertad was born in June of 1931 in Requena (Valencia). The Second Spanish Republic was proclaimed only two months earlier and the republican notions of liberty and fraternity, in addition to being reflected in her given name, accompanied her throughout her live and left their mark on her personality forever.

Upon marrying, she and her husband moved to Barcelona, where they lived for the majority of their lives. After being widowed in 1993, she decided to return to Valencia to live closer to her brother Miguel and other family members. A few years later, she decided to take her commitment to disadvantaged people one step further and became an Educo sponsor. Over the course of these years, she sponsored several children and saved the photographs and artwork that she received from them periodically at home, where they reminded her of how important her collaboration was in improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable children.
The people close to her describe her as “a good, friendly person with a high level of civic-mindedness when it comes to others”. It was precisely this generous spirit and solidary attitude that led her to leave a part of her inheritance to Educo. “Just one more civic action that was so in keeping with who she was".
We would like acknowledge this gesture and convey to Libertad, wherever she may be, our most sincere gratitude and that of the people who continue to benefit from her kindness.
That box of crayons
Erlinda was one of the girls that Libertad sponsored. Today, at 22, she shows great maturity and capacity for overcoming adversity. From her home in El Salvador, Erlinda tells us how she learned the value of working hard from a very young age. “When I began school, my mother always told me: ‘I am giving you until the third grade and that’s it’, but I always dreamed of graduating. Money was the most difficult part, because even though my parents wanted to give me an education, they didn't even have enough to pay for school supplies. That is why I began to work when I started the fourth grade”. And that’s when Educo came into her life. “They gave us school supplies, they taught us about good health, they fixed up the school and they were always there to help us with what we needed. This is what made me stay in school”.
Erlinda was sponsored by Libertad between 2005 and 2010, when she was in primary school. “For me it was a privilege to be sponsored, because that box of crayons, that pencil sharpener, those health sessions... were a blessing. Educo has been like a bridge to help me continue moving forward towards success". Thanks to her effort and determination, Erlinda finished secondary school and got her high school diploma. She currently works as a secretary and is studying Legal Science at the university. She aspires to becoming a lawyer so she can help her community defend their rights; but above all, she wants to set an example for children who live in the same conditions of poverty that she did and show them that, with a little effort, they can go far.
Looking back, Erlinda has words of gratitude for Libertad: “This amazing person will be rewarded for all of her good deeds. I truly appreciate the sacrifice she made for me”. The money that Libertad left Educo in her last will and testament will go to support the rights of children who, like Erlinda, live in harsh conditions and without access to quality education.
