Let´s help Argentine children!

We are still hoping to raise enough money to build a reading corner at the community center in Chaco province, Argentina. Chaco province has one of the lowest levels of education in the country and many of it's residents live in extreme poverty.

We have been lucky enough to receive some funding so far but we are still short of our target. Our aim is to benefit 70 children and their families by providing them with a reading corner, furnished with more than 450 children’s books.

The key skills gained from the reading corner will generate a lasting and positive impact on the personal development of these children and help them break free from the poverty cycle.

Raise awareness of the project: send the project description to your friends via facebook or tweeter.

Please help Fundaciòn Leer to provide children at Elisa in Chaco with a better start in life. Donate Now!
