In Argentina, every 8 minutes
a child drops school

The high rates of school dropout represent one of the most challenging
problems within low-wealth children, ages 5 to 18.

Not only do our programs encourage school-aged children to go to school, but they also provide safer, healthier and more prosperous environments to prevent drugs consumption and decrease criminal behavior.

Education is one of the best predictors of success in children. We help underprivileged, struggling students succeed in school (and in life) by teaching them values such as autonomy, sense of responsibility and solidarity.
