#HOMELESS ENTREPRENEUR

Caminantes de Estrellas wants to collaborate with this entity to help promote the eradication of homelessness and promote equal opportunities. Four Homeless Entrepeneurs (a homeless person within the Help program) will participate in the Jacobean Constellation 2021 walking with us. In addition, we will carry out activities on pilgrimages to raise awareness and give visibility to the homeless colectivity.

Homeless Entrepreneur's mission is to promote economic empowerment and poverty reduction through work and active citizenship, so that people living in social exclusion can improve their quality of life.To this end, they have developed the HELP program as a pathway to support independence, encouraging employment opportunities and business activities. They are turning, in times of covid, inactive tourist hostels in homes with the housing program #HomelessHostelsWork. They have created a telephone helpline, connecting homeless or people at risk, with the available resources to prevent and reduce homelessness; the Homeless Voices program with which using photos and short clips, homeless entrepreneurs can introduce themselves to the world. You can visit their website* to learn in detail about their work and how they are helping to improve the lives of many people.

Collaborate to make it possible! 

"Neither housing nor work ends homelessness on their own. Active citizen participation does."

La Bici es Bella is promoting this community challenge with the idea of riding more than 10,000 kilometers between several people to transform them into 10,000 euros and thus be able to provide bicycles to the students of the Loul Sessene School,in Senegal.Star Walkers will travel a total of 1,293 kms along the three chosen routes of the Camino de Santiago.  We'd love to raise €1,293 for this cause.

Bicicletas Sin Fronteras is an organization that works to improve the quality of life of people who are in less-favored situations using the bicycle as a tool of integration and equal opportunitiesUnder the slogan: "We don't give bikes, we change lives" they want to combat school absenteeismas well as bring more happiness, more future and more opportunities to the children who receive the bikes. They also benefit from getting more time to study, play and grow. We believe and are partakers of alchemy that transforms small actions into great opportunities.
