Mid-Term Update

We're thrilled to share some exciting results from our efforts to support children's

growth and learning:  Out of our 164 students, only two need extra help. 

They receive our extra support and we promote a positive learning environment for all.

Content Assessments: Our students have shown incredible progress in their studies.

Particularly in Mathematics, they've made remarkable improvements. High-performing

students have demonstrated that they can excel even further. Despite challenges, their

dedication has resulted in outstanding growth and achievements!

Attendance: Our students are showing up and showing out! Average attendance has

risen to 78,5%, marking a 10,5% increase since October 2022.

 

We're immensely proud of these achievements, and our commitment to support

our children remains unwavering! 💙

Education Progress

We're proud to report on the remarkable progress our children are making in their schooling.

Mid-term evaluations are providing valuable insights into each child's development. 

In May 2023, our Literacy Volunteer Programme started with 20 volunteers from JP Morgan Bank. 
Our young volunteers are first trained using our "DALE" methodology. 
They then meet with the children to teach them how to read and write. 


It is always amazing that there are still many 11- to 
13-year-olds coming to us who can neither read nor write!

 

CHARITY NIGHT 2023

Our 11th charity event was a big success!  On 9 March 2023, around 250 guests gathered in Zurich at the AURA, including the Argentine Ambassador to Switzerland, Mr Pedro D'Alotto, the Ibizan artist Marta Torres, as well as important entrepreneurs and businesswomen from Switzerland and abroad. Almost the entire board of our foundation also came from Buenos Aires to Zurich to be present at this important event.

During the evening, the guests were able to enjoy Argentinean specialities and participate in various games in the fairground ambience. There were great prizes to be won at the tombola and the auction. Our sponsors supported us with numerous great prizes, including Roger Federer with a signed tennis racket and Rafael Nadal and Breel Embolo with signed T-shirts to auction off!

Musical entertainment was provided by the well-known Swiss-Colombian singer Loco Escrito and the Argentine band "The Tonights", who travelled from Patagonia especially for the occasion.

 

We are very happy about this successful event! 💙
