WE WORKED ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF A SAFE SPACE FOR “PEQUEÑOS GIGANTES” SOUP KITCHEN IN COMODORO RIVADAVIA.
WORK LINE: COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION
THECNICAL AREA : INFRASTRUCTURE
Universidad Nacional de la Patagonia San Juan Bosco (UNPSJB, for its acronym in Spanish) and EWB-Ar volunteers.
What we have done
We have worked on the construction of a room for “Pequeños Gigantes” soup kitchen and gived it support in the process of forming a nonprofit organization.
The neighborhood is 14 km away from the city center. The merendero opened its doors in 2013 and works up to this day in a precarious metal sheets house. The mothers of the neighborhood serve the snack and organize activities for special dates for 30 boys and girls, and distribute donations as food or clothing for families who are in a vulnerable situation. In 2015, the construction of a room began, discontinuing the work before its completion.
With this project we
Encourage the development of new activities and improve the conditions in which boys and girls access to the place.
Promote community bonds improving the conditions of a meeting point.
Give support to neighbors in the creation of a nonprofit organization.
