Turning a Vision into Reality

Merche is the Founder and CEO. Merche is passionate about working on educational projects for supporting quality education for girls and boys worldwide. She has created six online enterprises through flamencojoy.com to support the Believe In You Charity. She wants to dedicate her life to serving others, and give something back to this world and to the new generations. Flamenco Joy involves dance music, teaching Spanish, and selling products for supporting children, and communities.

 

Merche visualized this important project for preventing and relief of poverty and for creating educational opportunities. S want to see a free equal world. Children are more than twice as likely as adults to live in extreme poverty, with nearly 385 million children worldwide experiencing that condition. According to analysis from the World Bank Group and The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), 4 Oct 2016 

 

Believe In You Charity will inspire and transform many children's lives who, without our help would be relegated to a world of child exploitation and poverty. We want to create a better world where every child has the right to be happy, to feel loved and safe, to have a family and a home, and to be educated. We intend to do so by creating projects and opportunities for all vulnerable children.

 

Merche have already visited Uganda and India; going to some of the poorest places in the world gave me more strength and sense to my project and put it into a new direction: to promote and facilitate education to vulnerable children. COVID-19 has changed the lives of everyone. Our focus right now is directed towards people’s emotional wellbeing. spreading love, hope, peace and joy.

Making Dreams Come True

Carmen has been collaborating with different charities since she was twelve years old because she considers this as a lifestyle. She grew up helping at “Regina Mundi”, “Caritas” and different summer camps where they helped the elderly people.

 

She decided to be an English teacher because she loves the British culture and she was teaching for fourteen years in different state schools in Spain. Now she is teaching Spanish in schools in England.

 

Carmen’s collaborations in Believe In You Charity are not just as a result of friendship, she believes that education can change lives and every child around the world has this fundamental right.
