In 2021, United VARs is committed to supporting a CSR Project for the children in the Santa Maria de la Armonía project in Argentina, 380 km from Buenos Aires. Kleine Hilfsaktion e.V. will work closely with the sisters of la Armonía to identify families most in need of our support, with daily challenges including:
- not having regular access to clean drinking water, resulting in the families suffering from water-induced diseases, such as diarrhea.
- hardly any toilets or sanitary facilities and limited hygiene options.
- no regular family life, often experiencing domestic violence, drugs, and prostitution at an early age.
- no educational opportunities and sadly, no life perspective
The project’s vision is to improve the living conditions and health of 100 – 150 children from rural areas, through teaching and homework supervision, sports, games, and hot meals. We want to give comfort and compassion to the children of Argentina. Children need hope for a better future. To achieve this, the project will hire Argentinian teachers, as well as some of the parents to work in the house and kitchen, helping the whole family. This project is sustainable in many ways because it is meant to;
- Strengthen the educational offer through a local partner and help to maintain its infrastructure
- Strengthen the children's families so that they can even send their children to the educational institution.
- Immediately improve children's health through improved hygiene and clean drinking water
