The children have been participating in the workshops with lot of enthusiasm. Besides the ongoing activities they do in the program, they had a sexual education and drugs prevention workshops that were lead by professionals in the areas. Also, our psychologists had a workshop with the mothers to try to revalue the role of women in the families and district, that a lot of times are not considered as equals.
Coming to the end of the year, the children are presenting their work in our annual event the 14-Dec, called "Gigantes"(Giants). The theme is a way of telling the stories of this small and big giants that are the children, facing challenges every day and breaking barriers.
Help us out to keep on developing the children!
Thanks a lot for all our supporters, without you would not be possible.

Update 3rd quarter
By Mario Raimondi - Director
After two weeks of winter holidays and incredible low temperatures in Argentina during July, our 35 children came back to the programs with lot of happiness. They even received some guests in the workshops, mostly local artists that created with them different art pieces that the children will expose in galleries, schools and local museums.
We have received more support from donors and that's great, we can keep on doing this fantastic action with the community.
Incredible progress in this project, our 35 children has been learning a lot about new media and using them to connect with the world. They have created their own blog that will be public soon, nowadays they are practicing with the functionality and creating day to day content. Also they have been using their brand new digital camaras to tell and show stories of their own reality, which is great. The program has the highest attendance of the whole organization! It is really reducing the digital gap and help children to learn in a different way.
Keep on supporting us and thanks a lot!
