Fail harder

In our last report we've told you about "El Desafio Festival", a 3-day event that we were planning to do late September and that was going to inspire eveyone with talks, debates and discussions about social issues and how to resolve them. However we had to postpone the festival for March/April 2015, due to some sponsors and supporters that couldn't participate as they said this time. We would love to do it last month, but sometimes things don't go exactly as you expected. In the positive side, we will have more time to make the event even greater than before!

Meanwhile, we are building 10 new mini libraries to be installed in the city, making a total of 14 overall! Thanks to our agreenment with Banco Macro, the new 'minis' will be completely funded by them and installed together with our volunteers and the bank's employees. So far 54000 people have been in contact with minilibraries and they are attracting more and more attention from the public, including the press that keeps on talking about it. Even chinese TV was interested in our work and broadcasted a small documentary about us (you can watch it here http://tinyurl.com/pjdl6nf

Thanks to your support we can keep on generating in argentinean society a more commited attitude towards social problems, which is key to resolver the problems in the long term. This year only more than 350 people joined our volunteers database, which shows a growing commited mindset in society.

Thanks a lot for your support and please stay tuned for more updates soon.
