What we have done
We accompanied the opening of the second social and supportive center managed by the organization SonRisas, «Dejando Huellas», working on the electrical installation. We improved the security conditions in a community space, aimed at children in the La Nango neighborhood.
La Nango is a neighborhood located in Monte Grande, Esteban Echeverría district, where more than 85 families live without basic services, in situation of social vulnerability and poor housing.
The creation of a community center constitutes a central space for support, accompaniment and new learning opportunities for children and young people in the neighborhood. There, recreation and training activities are offered, such as school support, literacy workshops, sports and snacks.
Having a safe and reliable electrical installation is fundamental to ensure the proper development of these community activities.
