Dear friends, 

The ongoing coronavirus crisis continues to have profound effects on our society: Schools are closed, business are shuttered, and unemployment numbers are rising. While it is easy to feel powerless in such an unprecedented situation, SMF has found some ways to support our children during this challenging time.

Since schools are closed nationwide, many children do not have access to the meals provided by the schools. Thanks to one of our dedicated School Directors in Misiones, Mr. Diego Carballo, we are able to help students and their families and making sure they have access to food while schools are closed.

Mr. Carballo receives funds from SMF and shops for food items that he personally delivers by traveling from village to village making sure that children and families receive what they need to sustain them in these difficult times. 

We are only able to do this thanks to your generosity and commitment to the children. We thank you and encourage to continue supporting the children who need our help. 

Stay safe and thanks for your continued support.

We did it!

Thanks to the overwhelming support from our donors, we were able to finish the School 373/01 in Paraje El Boton, El Soberbio, Misiones, now officially named “Guillermo J. Donaire”. For many years we have worked together with our supporters to build a better future for the children who live in one of the country’s poorest areas; this is a dream come true.

Last Monday, March 9th, 2020 was the official launch of the new school and the new academic school year. With the presence of local authorities, families from the community, and members of the 3 foundations involved, the 2020 school year began and the school was officially inaugurated.

The Satellite School has 25 children that attend and walk 5 to 8 kilometres every day to attend classes and to have access to education and nutrition as well. It is located in the middle of the jungle and the dirt roads make access to the school very difficult especially during the rainy season. 

Our sister foundation "Santa Clara" and their team of doctors, dentists, nurses and volunteers, have been visiting this community for 20 years. The children receive breakfast and lunch during the school year. Sometimes these are the only meals they will eat during the day.

In 2017, after the sudden death of our Foundation President and dear friend, the school director petitioned to have the school named after Guillermo. The Department of Education approved the petition and the plans to build a new school were set into motion.

Thanks to your help and generosity, these children have received a huge positive impact and the opportunity to learn under better conditions and to dream with a better future.

¡Lo logramos! 

Gracias al espectacular apoyo de nuestros donantes, pudimos terminar el nuevo edificio de la Escuela Satelital 373/01 en Paraje El Botón, El Soberbio, en la provincia de Misiones, ahora oficialmente llamada "Guillermo J. Donaire". Durante muchos años hemos trabajado junto con nuestros colaboradores y donantes para construir un futuro mejor para los niños y adolescentes que viven en una de las zonas más pobres del país; este es un sueño hecho realidad. 

El pasado lunes 9 de marzo de 2020 fue el lanzamiento oficial de la nueva escuela y el nuevo año escolar académico. Con la presencia de autoridades locales, familias de la comunidad y miembros de las 3 Fundaciones involucradas se dio inicio al año lectivo 2020 y quedó oficialmente inaugurada la escuela.

Creemos que cada niño tiene derecho a acceder a una educación de calidad y nuestro objetivo era proporcionar eso a este maravilloso grupo de estudiantes, maestros y Director.

La Escuela Satélite tiene hoy 25 niños que caminan de 5 a 8 kilómetros todos los días para asistir a clases y tener acceso a educación y nutrición. Está ubicada en el medio de la selva misionera y los caminos de tierra dificultan el acceso a la escuela, especialmente durante la temporada de lluvias.

El equipo de médicos, dentistas, enfermeras y voluntarios de nuestra Fundación Hermana Santa Clara ha estado visitando esta comunidad durante 20 años. Los niños reciben desayuno y almuerzo durante el año escolar; siendo estas a veces las únicas comidas que comen durante el día. 

En 2017, después de la repentina muerte de nuestro querido amigo y presidente de nuestra Fundación, el Director de la escuela solicitó que la escuela lleve el nombre de Guillermo. El Ministerio de Educación aprobó la petición y se pusieron en marcha los planes para construir una nueva escuela.

Gracias a su ayuda y generosidad, las vidas de estos niños han recibido un gran impacto y la oportunidad de aprender en mejores condiciones y soñar con un futuro mejor.

Dear friends,

As you may see on this NEW photo, and thanks to your support, the Guillermo J. Donaire school in Paraje El Botón, El Soberbio, Misiones, Argentina is almost finished.

We’d like to share the forward movement of the project and once again express our deep appreciation of your help making this dream possible.

We expect to have the grand opening on the first day of school on March 9, 2020 and, of course, we will share that with you.

Dear Friends:

We're extremely glad to announce that financing is in place to start construction of the BRAND NEW school, " Escuela #373/01, Guillermo Donaire ".

In the next few weeks, a team of architects, constructors and workers will begin the buildout of the main gallery, while the pannel assambly will follow in the month of January 2020.

The school, which will host 40 children in Primary Level education, replaces and old and mold ridden structure that was a hazzard to the children's health.

We'll be sending new reports as we more along with the construction so you can be a part of this with us.

We truly appreciate your continuous,

Sumando Manos Foundation

WE ARE BUILDING A BRAND NEW SCHOOL. 

Guillermo Donaire was the president of our Sumando Manos Foundation for 12 years until his sudden death in April 2017.

He was extremely involved in giving Argentine children a better life and better survival opportunities. He had a special fondness for the School 373/01 in El Botón, Province of Misiones, Argentina, that Sumando Manos has been helping since 2006.

That's why after Guillermo’s passing, the school principal Osvaldo Bordon, proposed to the Board of Education of the Province of Misiones to OFFICIALLY rename the school: “School #373/01 Guillermo Julián Donaire".

The existing school is in a precarious situation. The wood construction is obsolete. Mold, cold, heat, rain and the exposure to the elements make it very difficult for the 40 children, ages between 5 and 13 y/o, to attend classes in such precarious conditions.
We are extremely proud of building a Brand New school that will bear Guillermo's name.
Sincerely
Sumando Manos Foundation
