Fundación Misión Marianista works towards the overall advancement of people
Education, foster care and health care for people with low incomes
The Fundación Misión Marianista, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE, is carrying out four projects in Argentina within the framework of the “Education and Social Inclusion” initiative. These activities focus on education, foster care and health care for people with low incomes.
The first activity, “Educational workshops that build dreams”, develops educational, recreational, artistic and cultural workshops for children with complicated lives, offering them the companionship they need to face these situations.
The Hogar San Cayetano is a shelter for adolescent girls who lack the means to access secondary education. These young women come from families in which the older brothers work in the fields and the girls are dedicated to the home and caring for their families. This center gives them the chance to complete their secondary education.
The work of the shelter is complemented by the María Madre de la Juventud university residence, which enables these young women to access university studies in a suitable environment for their overall development.
The Ninquihué project is a house and day care center for street children. This project aims aims to take care of the education and development of these children while they are growing up, but also their personal development, teaching them daily hygiene habits and personal care. The project is complemented with nutrition and school support activities.
The aim of the Fundación Misión Marianista is to work on the education, social exclusion and overall advancement within the framework of the best option for poor people, principally with boys, girls, adolescents and young people.
