3rd quarter report 2013

We've been focusing in bring to life the mini public libraries in this period. We have done with 20 volunteers the little houses that will allocate the books and paint them in funny colours. The idea of the public mini libraries is to debate about how citizens take care of public things and what they do with them. The program has bring awareness to this thanks to the media attention it got.

The coming months we will be working for 2014 plans, good news is that the US embassy in Argentina provided us a grant to help us. Thanks to their support we are able to get 3 tablets for a 'mobile civic station' (a cool lab of social issues where people can share ideas and views on public problems) and also the making of short documenaries that will be broadcast locally.

Thanks to your support we can keep on moving with this innovative project.
