We walk hand in hand with children in Patagonia

In Puerto Madryn, Argentina's Patagonia, to reach our after-school locations and the families we help, we travel on dirt roads in difficult conditions that become almost impassable on rainy days.Thanks to the after-school program we give children a chance for a better future: the state education system is practically nonexistent and the children can barely read and write. Most arrive at age 12 completely illiterate, thus becoming adults who have no prospects or capacity to change their history.All this is exacerbated in very poor family contexts, which often also have major issues of violence. I and the other staff and volunteers at the center offer these children a space for learning, sharing and a small meal, because many families do not even have food to bring to the table.A new bus will be a valuable ally in being able to reach places that are difficult to access and most importantly will ensure the after-school program for even more children.Help us walk with them and help even more families.

We walk hand in hand with children in Patagonia

Fundraising by Maurizio Riba

In Puerto Madryn, Argentina's Patagonia, to reach our after-school locations and the families we help, we travel on dirt roads in difficult conditions that become almost impassable on rainy days.


Thanks to the after-school program we give children a chance for a better future: the state education system is practically nonexistent and the children can barely read and write. Most arrive at age 12 completely illiterate, thus becoming adults who have no prospects or capacity to change their history.


All this is exacerbated in very poor family contexts, which often also have major issues of violence. I and the other staff and volunteers at the center offer these children a space for learning, sharing and a small meal, because many families do not even have food to bring to the table.


A new bus will be a valuable ally in being able to reach places that are difficult to access and most importantly will ensure the after-school program for even more children.


Help us walk with them and help even more families. You can donate to this fundraiser or do even more: activate your own fundraiser to share with your contacts. Your help is a valuable presence here on mission with us.

The fundraiser supports the project: A different future at the end of the world
Total project goal: 20.000 €

In Patagonia, the Puerto Madryn center of the Pope John XXIII Community supports 43 disadvantaged children, providing education and meals to those from poor families and living in violent contexts. A new bus would help them reach difficult places and extend after-school care to even more children. Difficult winter weather conditions make the situation worse, especially for families with disabilities. The bus is essential to distribute material and emotional support during cold weather. Help them now.
