Working through adversity

Dear friends,


Argentina is still in quarantine since March and most surely schools and universities will not be able to open their doors until next year. This setback and the whole socio economic context the country is facing will have worrying consequences in our society. Poverty already reached 40% and families that were considered poor are today indigent.

On our last report, we shared information about our hard work during these difficult days we are all living. Cimientos´ team is working from the very beginning of the quarantine in order to continue accompanying young boys and girls and their families when they need it the most. Tutors and mentors are staying in touch by phone or using virtual platforms, adapting the different mentoring strategies so that youth can keep up with their schooling, as well as to bring training and employment opportunities to youth.

On July, we also held our first Virtual National Youth Meeting with more than 500 participants from 17 different provinces. You can watch a brief summary of those enriching days in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ft0mZ1Gv5s&feature=youtu.be

As we have mentioned previously, we organized virtual workshops, personalized mentoring, training courses and even obtained a donation for Internet data to almost 100 young boys and girls who couldn´t connect to their virtual school and university activities due to the lack of Internet in their households.

During October and November we will carry out training courses oriented to “employment” for 150 young boys and girls. These trainings will be developed in alliance with companies such as: KPMG, JP Morgan, Andreani, Quilmes, Mercedes Benz, Accenture, Mercado Libre y BBVA.

We will also develop two webinars together with Mc. Donald´s and a volunteer who is ontological coach and, furthermore, we will be working on a program with Grupo ASSA that will accompany students who are about to finish high school in the definition of their “life project”. We estimate 130 participants in these activities.

At the end of the year, we will work on our last Virtual National Youth Meeting destined to provide job orientation. The event will be developed together with other 5 organizations and we estimate the participation of 1.000 young boys and girls from all provinces of the country.

Your kind support will allow us to continue working as hard as we have done so far and will allow us to develop these activities for our young participants who are needing our presence more than ever.

Thanks for being part of Cimientos and support our work towards a better education in Argentina.

Warm regards,
