Who we are

Who we are

We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder is someone who, instead of offering provisional help, gets to know a community and its people, its weaknesses and strengths. In this way, we build a strong relationship with each community. A relationship that lasts a life time.

Waiting to be able to share some mates with everyone again! ⠀ Did you know that drinking mate has its own dynamics?⠀ There is a person who fattens the mate with hot water (not boiling!), we call it "cebador". Each person drinks the whole content of the mate and gives it back to the "cebador" who is in charge of passing the mate through the group. There is also a golden rule: you cannot move the straw. It is a way of sharing and a very social and communitarian drink. Of course, COVID's protocols do not allow us to share it with everyone as we used to. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #COVID #Mate #Argentina #Tradition

Today, October 22, is the National Day for the Right to Identity in commemoration of the struggle of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo for the search and recovery of children kidnapped and appropriated by the last civic-military dictatorship.⠀ ⠀ The years between 1976 and 1983 were the cruelest and violent in the history of Argentina: murders, tortures, kidnappings, and all kinds of human rights violations.⠀ ⠀ In that context, these incredible women began fighting. They were mothers of the disappeared who, in addition to claiming for the appearance of the disappeared alive, were looking for their grandchildren, some kidnapped along with their fathers and another born during the captivity of their mothers in clandestine detention centers.⠀ ⠀ To date, 130 grandchildren have been recovered and the search continues.⠀ ⠀ Nunca más.⠀ ⠀ @abuelasdifusion??? ⠀ #MesdelaIdentidad #AbuelasdePlazadeMayo #Argentina #NuncaMás

This time we share the testimony of Luci, who describes the difficult situation in the vulnerable neighborhoods of the city of Buenos Aires. ⠀ ⠀ "Our daily view is that the crisis has not improved, we believe that this is becoming more severe as time goes by.⠀ ⠀ We had 100 families who, in order to receive from the food bags given by the government, we present the forms and then gave them to the families. That is now suspended, they are not going to give it to them and we don't know how they are going to sustain it. What the references say is that the people have already begun to go to work and no longer need it and that they are going to gradually cut off certain benefits, which is not a benefit, it is a right in this situation that a state should fully assist without looking at each one.⠀ ⠀ Week by week the crisis increases and this is what one sees about how the commercial and labor field is handled. Some folks get a pittance of the aid and have to mobilize to get it... it's sad in the face of the pandemic where the state should be assisting without asking. It is the city government that is doing these things and the truth is that what are we going to do? we continue to work day by day and time passes and people are relaxing in terms of care, but we know that the evil, the plague, the virus continues and it is complicated, although there are people who don't believe it so much, it is still a concern. I am very worried, one sees the information and the economy is falling apart.⠀ ⠀ The truth is that in the face of the crisis I no longer see answers. I do see movement from the families who have to go out because they have to see a way to have money, they are looking for it. We, the community kitchens, have no support and we don't talk about food, we talk about human resources, nobody came to tell us 'you work well, we're going to give you an incentive, to improve your quality of life'. In this situation of the pandemic, we have put body, soul, and life in a society with high vulnerability and we do not know if the government takes this into account or not, if they listen to us or not. But we do have controls,...⠀ ⠀ Read more on our blog: https://bit.ly/2HnP52o
