Nutrition, health and education for the most vulnerable
Argentina has the highest Human Development Index in all of Latin America and is considered a regional power. Its population is mostly composed of descendants of Spanish and Italian immigrants. We support projects dedicated to promote nutrition, health and education of the most needy social extracts of the country.
The project of the association Mensajeros de la Paz consists of a specialized care home located in Longchamps (province of Buenos Aires) that provides all-round support to children who live in complex situations of rights violations and who must live temporarily away from their family environment.
Three hundred meals a day, formal and non-formal education for children, vocational school for young people, English and computer classes, and health care through a health center: these actions join together to provide an integral project that fights against social exclusion in the Argentinean city of Tres Isletas.
The city of Mar del Plata has the highest number of children living without family care in Argentina. In the Aldeas Infantiles family homes, 54 children receive the care, stability and conditions they need for their full development.
The Asociación Civil Mensajeros de la Paz has been working since 2010 on the project “Hogares Malen”, through which a home and care is given to 180 children under the age of 12 in Buenos Aires, Argentina who are in vulnerable situations.
The Fundación Misión Marianista is carrying out four projects in Argentina within the framework of the “Education and Social Inclusion” initiative and which focus on education, foster care and health care for people with low incomes.
In the southeastern neighborhoods of the city of Tres Isletas, in the province of Chaco, there are a large number of people with few resources, little education and insufficient skills to access employment. The Jesús María Community Center project contributes to the development of this community.
Aldeas Infantiles SOS works in the Argentine town of Mar de Plata providing a home and environment in which children can develop and grow without risk of exclusion. The organization carries out two complementary programs: the “Foster Care Program” and the “Family Strengthening and Community Development Program”.
