The kids waiting for the end year show

It's summer in Argentina and in humid Rosario temperatures are reaching 38 degrees Celsius. Children are still in school holidays and there is not much activity in the city, everyone is having some relax time in the beach in Brazil or Argentina coast. But for us is completely different.

We've rented a new place of 190sqm in where we are gonna be able to receive 3 times more children and have much more programs for the community. We are working on the renovation of the place together with local architects, engineers, designers and experts that know how important it is to create the right environment to stimulate the kids. Renovations should start end of February and we should be ready by end April.

Our activities however have already started, and the children will come back to the program 1st of March. We are thrilled to know more children will join, it''s a nice mix of adrenaline and excitement.

Last year ended the best possible way. The children were able to show their work in our end year event in front of 400 people. This is a very special moment of the year for the kids and families, where they can show their work and achievements. It's also a good way of building bridges between the society in Argentina, bringing them all together and encouraging to connect in a new way. The public reacted very positive to the work done and we've gained support and donors.

2012 starts quite challenging and we are ready to go, and we would like to thank you for your support and ask you to please stay tuned. We can't succeed without your help!
