Uno de nuestros principales objetivos este año es tener un espacio nuevo y más grande, para que nuestras actividades sucedan allí.

Estamos casi listos para alquilar un local en San Cristóbal, un barrio de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, donde contaremos con diferentes espacios como aulas, salas de conferencias, oficinas de reuniones y lugares de trabajo especiales para desarrollar capacitaciones específicas en oficios.

Este año es clave porque también ampliaremos nuestras fronteras y abriremos un nuevo Centro de Formación para el Empleo en la ciudad de Gualeguaychú, en la provincia de Entre Ríos, a tres horas de Buenos Aires.

Para que todo eso suceda, vamos a necesitar todo el apoyo que podamos obtener. Las cosas están empezando a andar, pero estamos con el tiempo contado para conseguir recursos, y compartir nuestro trabajo, seguirnos en las redes sociales y compartir, y donar cualquier cantidad que puedas, nos ayudará a estar preparados cuando llegue el momento.

Por último, en esta ocasión queremos compartir con vos algunas fotos de nuestro Taller de Costura para Mujeres Vulnerables, que forma parte de nuestro programa de Emprendimientos Productivos Escuela, donde producimos barbijos para un proyecto financiado por la Unión Europea en el que Multipolar es un aliado muy importante.

¡Muchas gracias por tu apoyo, siempre!

One of our main goal this year is to have a new, bigger space for our activities to happen.

We are almost ready to rent a place in San Cristobal, a neighborhood in Buenos Aires city, where we will have different spaces such as classrooms, conference rooms, meeting offices and special work-places to develop specific craft training.

This year is key because we will also expand our frontiers and open a new Employment Training Centre in the city of Gualeguaychú, in Entre Rios Province, three hours away from Buenos Aires.

For all that to happen, we are going to need all the support we can get. Things are starting to run, but we are on a shcedule and sharing our work, following us in social media and sharing, and donating any amount you can, will help us to be prepare when the moment arrives.

Finally, this time we want to share with you some pictures of our Sewing Workshop for Vulnerable Women, that is part of our Social Productive Entrepreneuership program, where we produced face masks for a project funded by the European Union in which Multipolar is a very importan partner.

Thank you very much for your support, always!

This project is our main pillar, it's been running since we started our missions and it's still our main priority.

2021 has been a year of exceptional growth for Multipolar, new members have joined the team, new volunteers are participating and because of that, we are reaching much more people.

We had 5 different Employment Training Centers in different parts of the city and even in some towns of Buenos Aires province. 

Providing tools to create better opportunities for those who can't access a decent job so easily was and will be our main goal for this new year-.

THANK YOU to every one fo you who participated or donated/donates to our cause!

The Employment Training Center is back and upgraded!

COVID hit us hard but, as they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. We have been unable to begin new in-person procesess due to the sanitary restrictions...until now.

Over the last months, new volunteers from different backgrounds have been joining our Involvement Program. From mental healt professionals to HR and English teachers, both carrying out activities for our beneficiaries and our staff.

Our professional team has also been growing, in part so that we can give support and leadership to the work of the new volunteers, and improve our Employment Training Center and its process. This will result in more activities, more workshops and more mental health care, more work skills building and rebuilding, and more job opportunities generated by our beneficiaries.  

Our production programs have been innovating in out Product & Services catalog, in order to keep it update for the companies and individuals that support us through our web store.

We have also engaged in a Program that ensures COVID-19 vaccines for the homeless in Buenos Aires City and develops different workshops for them as well. 

Multipolar knows that if we don't join forces with many actors of society, our goal won't be achievable. 

Thank you for reading, 

We will keep in touch for this new beginning.

If for any moment you thought that the second wave would stop our effort to find decent jobs for homeless people, forget it! We keep with the same love, commitment and profesionalism sharpening our processess and working with homeless people who want to leave streets behind.

It is an honour for us to share with you that our methodology keeps improving: We added a Ocupational Therapist that works with each user of the center to orientate him/her, we are adding coaches that add their efforts to the work done by our psychologists and new workshops are beginning this April.

All our work would not be possible without your support so once and again we do thank you to be there. 

Homeless people can leave streets if they find decent jobs! Please spread the word!

We are really happy. In the middle of the storm, we were capable to strive and opening our Center for Homeless Employment, and we are working in the trainings, job creation and the beginning of a new business.

In spite of the limits faced by our organisation due to the pandemy, we decided to keep the work and the efforts and now the Center is a reality: Perhaps it is not like we have thought in the beggining, but what was as we all expected in 2020?

 

In this moment Marce, Jorge, Eric, Pedro and Diego are creating a pilot for selling food, as due to their age, health or legal situation they can´t get a formal job.

At the same time, our psychologist is progressing in the treatment of those in need so they can heal both their minds and souls after so many years living in the streets.

We are planning Giving Tuesday, somethinng we learned thanks to GlobalGiving, so we are happy and blessing that, in spite of all, we have health to continue our daily work.
