Who we are
How we started...
It started on June 4th 2002 to meet the needs of a group of children that knocked on our door for a piece of bread daily.
In a short while the number of children increased so we decided to enlarge and adapt the dining room. Nowadays this service receives an average of 200 people and 6000 monthly rations, since besides feeding children, take out night supplies are given out for the family dinner.
Thus we dedicated a sector of our house where we started to feed about 10 school children initially. Our dining room is called “ESPERANZA” (HOPE) at the children’s request and because they are our hope.
This institution was created by the initiative of a group of neighbors in General Rodríguez, in order to attend to urgent basic needs of many families in our community
Nowadays we help 50 families from Monday to Sunday, having between 6 and 14 children each, all of them at risk.
After a short while some businesses in the area learnt about our project and started to cooperate so that the help given would improve daily.
In this way we could carry out our main objective: To supply families with the necessary tools to generate real income resources.
This project is self supporting at the medium term but in the meantime it is necessary to continue feeding and helping children mainly, who are the most critical age group.
This is why your contribution is essential to maintain our mission.
