Children explore cultural identity at the football stadium!

In February, 110 boys and girls from the foundation visited the River Plate football stadium in Buenos Aires with their teachers.

Not only were many dreams fulfilled, but the children also explored the central theme of this year's institutional project: our cultural identity. At Cartoneros y sus Chicos, we work with the methodology of project-based learning. For this reason, cultural and leisure outings are not only fun, but also have an educational purpose. They are a great resource to continue learning! 

Many thanks to Banco Ciudad for making this excursion possible. 💙

Inauguration 2nd Floor
of our school

The grand opening of the 2nd floor of our school took place on 11th of October. In the presence of many friends of our foundation, we celebrated this special milestone with joy and gratitude.

With this extension, we will double the number of children we can teach from 200 to an incredible 400 children! This means that even more young people will have the opportunity to learn, grow and shape their future in a supportive and enriching environment.

Many thanks to everyone who has made this possible. Together, we are making dreams come true. 


We are delighted to have been recognised in the highest category of the FEDEFA Solidarity Award 2023.
