Pass the Gas: gas for 500 families in Argentina

Sep 12, 2011

August was full of good news for the FPVS!

Shoulders to the wheel!
Shoulders to the wheel!

UVA: Firstly, a goal was reached in order to begin construction in Moreno! 

The Project UVA (Unión de Vecinos en Acción) achieved 65% of the needed signatures, meaning that the gas construction and renovation in Moreno can start! We experienced many challenges in achieving this target while the neighbors have been working very hard! As Liliana Quevedo, a “vecina”, said: “This is the result of all I have learned, Trustworthy, perseverance and the most important, that each of us are doing the best we can to build our future together, for us and our families.”

It is in this context that they all said proudly: “Shoulders to the wheel!”


BUYF (Barrio de Unión y Futuro):Trusteeship of guarantee.

Moreover, a trusteeship of guarantee was signed in the beginning of August in a school of Moreno in order to carry on the construction of the gas network, to begin the home installation within the main neighborhoods in Moreno (Altos de Moreno, Lomas de Moreno y 25 de Mayo) to get funds for the project and to be sure that it will be used for this cause.

At the end of this reunion, the Foundation made the promise to do its best to find the necessary funds and to begin the construction as soon as possible! According to Raquel Casanova from the area of Neighborhood development, “This contract put a legal form to our project, it is very important that we are now an every block!”

However, while we have raised US $1,405 we still need to raise US $6,595 to carry on the foundation's projects.
