Stage 1: For a week we will work together with the organization La Sartén por el Mango: The project is focused on the communities of South America where due to environmental, social and governmental reasons; citizens struggle to rise above social inequity. The purpose of this project is to help those who constantly battle with the day-to-day socio-economic challenges. Therefore, the aims of the project are to create sustainable social change through building relationships and implementing strategic systems and structures, to provide a platform for transition from subsistence to maintaining a good quality of life for each individual, to actively support current generations in creating healthy and livable communities and plan for future generations to follow their example. Project activities: The project provides food every day to children and young people in a slum of Montechingolo, Lanús. It organizes art and cultural workshops as well. Community context: In Buenos Aires, 1/3 of the children below the age of 17 live below the poverty line. This statistic is determined without taking into consideration additional factors like access to education, health care, a safe environment, adequate housing, rights,opportunities, or social security. The reality is that much more than 1/3 of these children are living with inadequate basic needs. Stage 2: In the second stage they will develop a project with the Quebrachito in Villa Ana, Santa Fe. The organization, Quebrachito represents the new roots of a region cut down by the exploitation of the Quebracho, the new young people with common concerns and desire to improve the social reality of Villa Ana and the world. Quebrachito was born with the aim of doing community work in the town, which encourages young people to engage with the social-political reality and at the same time deepen their knowledge and achieve a comprehensive vision of the world. He is currently committed to the task of consolidating the meeting space La Madriguera that with its recent two years of operation has been generating a lot of social life in the town.

It is located in the center-east region of the country, on the western shore of the Río de la Plata, in the Pampean region. The jurisdictional limits of the CABA are as follows: it borders the Province of Buenos Aires on the South in the waters of the Riachuelo, while on the West and North the limit is demarcated by the General Paz Avenue. For the Northeast and part of the East, the Argentine capital borders the Rio de la Plata, which is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Argentine national state up to seven nautical miles from the coast. At the same time, on the East there is a line formed by: President Ramón A. Castillo Avenue, Corbeta Uruguay and Avenida Antártida Argentina and Avenida Lanchas up to the Río de la Plata; then taking the limit in the line formed by Avenida España, Rawson Avenue of Dellepiane and Dr. Arturo Balbín Highway, reaching the Riachuelo. This described line demarcates a limit for the East, between the jurisdiction of the CABA and a space under the jurisdiction of the National State, which is the Port of Buenos Aires (not to be confused with Puerto Madero). It is the city with the largest population in the country and the fourth most populated state, behind the following states: the Province of Buenos Aires, the Province of Córdoba and the Province of Santa Fe.

The commune of Villa Ana is located northeast of the province of Santa Fe, in the General Obligado department, 439 km from the provincial capital. The Villa Ana area is included among the towns that are known as part of the Tanino Route in the north of the Province of Santa Fe, between the Departments of Vera and General Obligado. Towards 1910, the engineer Lorenzo Guller, on behalf of La Forestal, ventured into the area called Campo Redondo at that time, in search of drinking water to install a tannin factory.

Fundación SES is a social organization created in 1999. It strives to promote the inclusion of youth at risk, with a focus on the development of their rights. Together with other social organizations, companies, the State and international organizations, it implements initiatives in Argentina, Latin America and Europe. Fundación SES seeks to increase education opportunities and develop professional skills for young people, as well as strengthen the active participation of young people in their communities. The main strategy is twofold: it involves the development of networks and the strengthening of associations, as well as the strengthening of different organizations that are part of civil society, jointly developing public policies together with the State. Our acronym (SES) represents our three foundational values: Sustainability, since we are committed to future generations. Education, as an engine of development. Solidarity, pillar of social integration. Subir al Sur is an initiative that encourages intercultural volunteering in Argentina and around the world as a tool for personal and collective transformation. It promotes the participation of youngsters as active citizens through voluntary service and solidarity-based actions. This is achieved thanks to the collaboration of Fundación SES’s international partners and our network of local organizations in Argentina. More info: http://fundses.org.ar/
The volunteers coming to Argentina should provide information regarding their skills, abilities and ideas. – Subir al Sur organizes a Skype meeting before the arrival of the volunteer in terms of organizing everything and provide to them the required information in order to prepare themselves for the upcoming volunteering experience. – In Argentina most of the people do not speak a second language – such as English – it is advisable to be prepared to practice the local language as much as you can… For this reason, we suggest practicing Spanish as soon as you decide to participate in our programme, ask for any Spanish tools by mail once you have decided to participate. – The local organization opens the horizons for you and you are expected to be active and engaged with the institutional misión. The organisation will expect that you propose some activities and workshops, so be prepared to share your skills and knowledge. – It can happen that, at the beginning of the programme you could feel that there is not so much work to do in the Project and that they are a bit disorganized. You should keep in mind that it is a new environment, new people, new culture and that they have their own methodology and that you might need time to understand and integrate in the new environment. This period will be short depending on your own flexibility and adaptation. – Our projects are located in vulnerable areas. So, you have to be aware of possible dangers when walking around alone in these regions, especially during night time after the work. You are going to be part of a project where priority is the target group and the volunteer is in the Project in order to help the local organization in their mission. – You should not expect to be the priority or to receive a special treatment for being a volunteer. You will need to try to adapt yourself to the actual demands of the project and not vice-versa. – We will always provide you with support when it is needed, but we will expect as a return, that you will want to join the activities and also will be interested in making your own proposals in order to develop different activities or workshops once you are placed in the project.
