Social Inclusion through arts

by El Desafio Foundation


Art is something that lot of people don't look at nor understand. The children from El Desafio probably they have a lot of opportunities to explore in this sense, since art is everywhere around them

The beneficiaries are 35 children from 7 to 15 years old of Rosario, Argentina, living in poverty conditions and at-risk situation. In Argentina there are 6 millions children living in this situation. These children have many basic needs unsatisfied and therefore they become socially excluded. Art gives them the chance to express their issues and open their minds and perspective towards the world.


Art is a powerful tool that stimulates imagination, help to dream and to have a bigger view on the world. Its a great way to tell stories as well, and we will use new media (blogs, social media) to spread and expose the work of the children

Long-Term Impact

When children see things from other perspective, they realize how much they can achieve and start dreaming. After the first performance in public ever, the children realized they could reach any goal if they would keep working together.
