Summary

Established in 1977, our non-profit organization aims to recover identities of grandchildren taken during Argentina's dictatorship. Renowned globally for articles protecting child identity rights in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the "Grandparenthood index" for kinship proof, and contributions to psychology, universal justice, and Human Rights awareness, we strive to reunite families and promote justice.

Challenge

During Argentina's dictatorship 30,000 people were kidnapped, tortured, and disappeared. Among them were pregnant women who gave birth in captivity; their babies were illicitly adopted, raised under false identities. Through societal contributions, investigations, and the justice system, we've resolved 137 cases. Our relentless search, spanning decades, has reunited many grandchildren. Still, 300 remain unfound. An estimated 500 babies were stolen during the dictatorship.

Solution

In 9 areas across 5 locations, we locate the grandchildren and prevent child appropriation crimes. We aid those questioning their origins or have suffered rights violations, offer psychological support, participate in crimes against humanity trials, and foster awareness on memory and human rights through cultural events. Our campaigns amplify the search, while educational initiatives train on identity and human rights, ensuring history is not forgotten.

Long-Term Impact

Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo is of vital importance for the promotion and safeguarding of the right to identity in Argentina and the world. The work of our association is central to advocacy on public policies related to the defense of human rights and the validity of the Memory, Truth and Justice process in Argentina. Our teams work to transmit this legacy of learning and collective knowledge, so that these crimes against humanity are not repeated anywhere in the world.
