About The Eva Longoria Foundation
The foundation was established in 2010 by actress, activist and philanthropist Eva Longoria. This foundation has been established primarily for, but not limited to, two charitable causes: women in the Latino community and children. http://www.evalongoriafoundation.org/
To help women build better with career training, mentorship, capital and opportunity. By investing in women and girls, we hope to build a stronger future for our world. Furthermore, The Eva Longoria Foundation will help raise awareness for children of all ethnic and racial backgrounds suffering from health-related problems. Eva Longoria has been a spokesperson for Padres Contra El Cancer for the past nine years trying to improve the quality of life for children with cancer futures for themselves and their families through education and entrepreneurship.
Women play an important role in society, yet they disproportionately lack educational and economic opportunities.
· Women account for two-thirds of the world’s illiterate adults
· In developing countries, only 63% of girls enroll in secondary school
· Women make up only one-third of non-farm wage earners
In spite of these discouraging statistics, we are optimistic about the future for women and girls, especially Latinas. Hardworking and dedicated to their families, they are one of the world’s greatest untapped resources.
Our vision is to give women and girls the tools they need to reach their potential. The Eva Longoria Foundation supports programs that help girls excel in school and attend college. Additionally, we work to provide female entrepreneurs and their families. Eva Longoria has also founded Eva’s Heroes in San Antonio, Texas, in an effort to enrich the lives of teens and young adults who are developmentally challenged.
About the Cesare Scariolo Foundation
It is a private non-profit organization whose main goal is direct aid to children who are receiving cancer treatments, as well as social and psychological support to their families. Born by the impulse of its president, Sergio Scariolo basketball coach, and develop its task mainly in the province of Malaga, although in order to continue growing in the rest of the country http://www.cesarescariolo.org/
“It has always been part of my concerns and thoughts awareness of the existence of people and especially children and their families who have to learn to live with serious illnesses such as leukemia and lymphoma. Accordingly, those who have requested my assistance, are entities or institutions have been able to count on it. The personal experience as a result of the cancer disease suffered by my father and his subsequent death, make those concerns and thoughts to surface in a more latent and involve me more with the idea of helping those who are so severely affected for such diseases. This is the meaning of Cesare Scariolo Foundation, an idea born with lots of help modesty, wanting to be a grain of sand over the many individuals and institutions that devote their efforts to combat diseases.” – Sergio Scariolo.
