New School in Misiones


Guillermo Donaire was the president of our Sumando Manos Foundation for 12 years until his sudden death in April 2017.

He was extremely involved in giving Argentine children a better life and better survival opportunities. He had a special fondness for the School 373/01 in El Botón, Province of Misiones, Argentina, that Sumando Manos has been helping since 2006.

That's why after Guillermo’s passing, the school principal Osvaldo Bordon, proposed to the Board of Education of the Province of Misiones to OFFICIALLY rename the school: “School #373/01 Guillermo Julián Donaire".

The existing school is in a precarious situation. The wood construction is obsolete. Mold, cold, heat, rain and the exposure to the elements make it very difficult for the 40 children, ages between 5 and 13 y/o, to attend classes in such precarious conditions.
We are extremely proud of building a Brand New school that will bear Guillermo's name.

New roof for La Gloria School

We're extremely proud to announce that Sumando Manos has replaced the old and damaged roof of Tomas de Acevedo school #916, located in La Gloria, Pampa del Indio, Chaco, attended by 36 students from 6 to 14 year old.

The previous roof was old, rotten and torn apart. It allowed rain, humidity, insects and cold to coming in, preventing the chldren from having a dignified school enviroment. 

We not only replaced the roof, but also the floors, walls and external appearance.

We want to make this report short, as the pictures speak all for themselves.

Thank you for your amazing support.

We keep on working for the children

Dear friends,

During the first quarter of 2019 we continued to help the schools that are part of our program. Our program “Breakfast for the Children” continued without interruption, as well as our nutrition and health programs.

The schoolchildren who benefit from this program are from the small rural towns of El Soberbio, Misiones and Pampa del Indio, Chaco. Thanks to this program, they receive breakfast and/or lunch on every school day. This campaign is key, because in many of the schools admitted in this project, this is the only meal the children receive all day long. All help is welcome. With US$15, breakfast is provided to a child for a full month. For more information and donations, please visit:

As part of our health program, Dr. Marcelo Wirth together with a dentist, Dr. Andrea, continue the regular visits to rural schools in Pampa del Indio, Chaco. During the visit, they check all the children that need care and provide preventive medicine to many others. We will also work together so that children who need a follow-up visit or a new consultation can do so at the local hospital as soon as possible. 

Again, thank you so much for your continued support and we look forward to your contribution in the future.
