Summary

Santiago del Estero is one of the poorest areas and has the largest rural population in Argentina . By empowering rural schools, we aim to develop the community, the families and children, focusing in three main subjects: education, nutrition and health. Our work improves the life of over 1300 primary students from 35 rural communities, reaching food security, guaranteeing health care, providing clean water access and enhancing educational quality.

Challenge

According to the report presented by the UN (UNDP), Santiago del Estero is in the top of the Argentina's inequality ranking. This shows that the possibility of development for children and young people in this region is very low, especially for those who live in rural areas where access to a proper education, basic sanitation facilities, electricity and even drinking water are denied.

Solution

Support rural children through actions and activities focused on: 1) Nutrition: Ensuring food sustenance during the school year. 2) Health: Offer primary health care to children and young people from 0 to 18 years old, and provide access to drinking water. 3) Education: Elaborate literary workshops and educational activities to children in rural schools, and train teachers with the design of educational workshops.

Long-Term Impact

Fundacion San Genaro has been developing this project since 2011, helping more than 45 rural communities, over 3000 rural children and 500 families, improving not only access to basic services but also providing the tools to improve the educational offer and quality of the rural schools in Santiago del Estero.
