The Sarmiento neighborhood in Buenos Aires is crossed by multiple socio-environmental problems and families are in a highly vulnerable situation. The Jardin de la Montana is the only educational space for early childhood there. It receives 40 children from 1 to 3 years old and also offers school support and multiple recreational activities. Having this space is essential so that mothers can access educational and work opportunities. The project consists of increasing the garden's capacity by 50%
The Los Amigos civil association operates in an area crossed by multiple problems that affect children directly, such as job insecurity, drug use, parents in prison. The association offers a space for the containment and promotion of fundamental rights of children and adolescents. It also supports families to have access to education and work opportunities. The current building does not have a multipurpose room, nor specific spaces for activities simultaneously with another population.
The project is divided into two stages that include the expansion and improvements to the nursery school and the construction of a new space for children and adolescents. Approximately 210 m2 will be built and another 100 m2 will be adapted. This expansion, in addition to improving the building condition of the kindergarten, will increase its capacity by 50%, so that more children can access a decent education.
With the realization of this project, it will be possible to favor the social impact of El Jardin de la Montana in the community, improve the conditions in which the kindergarten activities take place and leave installed capacity for the sustainability and growth of the association.
