FIRST SMALL ONLINE PROJECTS

1. PURCHASE OF FURNITURE AND TEACHING MATERIALS FOR THE "SAN JOSE CARPINTERO" SOCIAL CENTRE OF PUERTO IGUAZU IN ARGENTINA South Atlantic Province. The community of Sisters of the Assumption of Puerto Iguazu, in the North-East of Argentina, animates a Social Centre that welcomes children and adolescents in situations of great poverty. Because it is a very young and mixed population, many of them have no place in the already overcrowded schools either because their parents cannot buy them the necessary school supplies and clothing, or because they make them work at home. The Centre enables these children and adolescents to acquire basic knowledge as well as gain confidence in their ability to prepare for a better future. The Centre lacks furniture and teaching materials.

Cost of theFurniture: 1,850 €.Teaching materials: 800 €.

2. CREATION OF A SEWING WORKSHOP IN SINGA CHINI IN TANZANIA

East Africa Province. The Religious of the Assumption run 3 schools in Tanzania and 2 in Kenya. The creation of a sewing workshop will allow the 1,600 students in Tanzania to buy their uniforms at a lower price and will offer work to 3 or 4 women who will make them. To carry out this project, the Sisters need to buy 2 second-hand container vans that they will transform into a sewing room.
