Final report

"The only thing constant is change".

After years of incredible artistic program Garabato comes to an end. Well, kind of. It's time for a renewal, to think of refreshing ideas and we want to start from scratch.

During all these years, and thanks to your incredible support, we've impacted hundreds of children in Rosario with creativity and curiosity. The individual stories have been amazing and the overall results impressive. But we know we can do even better, and that's why we are closing Garabato Artistic project to start a new program with innovative concepts that will allow us to reach and connect with children in better ways.

We thank you for being there and to respond to Argentinean children's needs. We hope you keep on following our work and other projects we have in Globalgiving, we will for sure counting with you for our new challenges!

All the best for 2016 and see you soon!

Final report

It has been amazing. And after one year the project finished and now its time to rethink, renew and redevelop strategies and methodologies with the learnings made. The participants of the first Skateboard program for development in Rosario have been part of an incredible experiency and gained life skills that helps them to face day to day challenges. They learned how to manage frustration, how important is collaboration as a way of individual improvement and of course to get up after falling.

Thanks to your support we've made this possible, and now it's time to come back with a even better program in 2016! 

All the best and see you soon!

Growing on and off the boards

Many classes have gone by since we started this program, and of course kids abilities both on the board and in their lives have increased greatly.

Last month we visited a local skate-park where they faced their own fears and dared to go down a ramp and practice some of the skills they’ve mastered on the local park on a real skaters paradise, it was great to mix with other skaters that share their same passion for boards and interact on and off the board.

During the last classes we’ve made a new innovation on the workshop by mixing basketball and skateboarding, a brand new sport, where from the boards they pass the ball into the hoops, a new challenge that is on the way of becoming a hit sport during this summer!

On an organizational level, this November 10 we will be hosting our first festival, the “Happy Cities Festival” that intends to inspire the community into thinking the type of city that we live in and how we can work to improve it. We will also be showing our work there, so if you, or anyone you know happens to be in Rosario during that date, please stop by!

If you have any questions, remarks or ideas please contact me luz.amuchastegui@eldesafio.org and if you haven´t done it yet, join our facebook fanpage where we share day to day information.

As always, thanks for supporting this project!
