What we are doing

We are participating in the construction of a community swimming pool for more than 1000 children and teenagers that go to different neighborhood associations.

Why

Contact with water stimulates both respiratory and automotive development and it also improves socialization, autonomy and control over one’s own body and its limits. The children and teenagers from Bernal Oeste, Quilmes, do not have the possibility to swim nor to learn how to do it. Having a local sports area with these characteristics will improve the quality of these children’s and teenager’s lives and that of the community in general.

With this project we:

  • Offer a space destined to health and sports to a community that currently has no access to it.
  • Stimulate the comprehensive development of children and teenagers that includes swimming, working in groups and game playing.
  • Strengthen the ties between the community, the schools, the families and the social associations in order to generate continuity in the creation of proposals destined to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood.
