Asociación Civil Por los Chicos
Hello! We are an NGO without political or religious affiliations that works to improve the quality of life of girls and boys in vulnerable situations in Argentina.
Por Los Chicos is, first and foremost, a group of people who one day decided to help those who need it most. We are a civil association without political or religious affiliations born in 2001, in the midst of the strong economic crisis that we faced as a country, with the aim of improving the quality of life of more than 3,500 boys and girls in vulnerable situations in Argentina, putting our efforts in education and child nutrition in order to expand their opportunities and thus facilitate their social inclusion. Today we have over 50 volunteers of all ages and of all corners of the world who dedicate time and energy to this supportive family committed to the same social cause.
Together, we continue to turn your donation into hope.
What do we do?
We provide food support to community canteens and develop social projects in different parts of Argentina, with a value of respect for the rights of children, adolescents and families and with an eye on education, health, art and cultural, and social inclusion. What is our dream?
Build a society where all girls and boys can grow up healthy, strong and with the same opportunities. With a better quality of life, where there is no social exclusion, and they can unfold their potential to have the freedom to choose, who they want to be and where they want to go. What do we believe in?
Our work and actions are based on: Solidarity to promote social and cultural inclusion. The honesty and transparency of our actions. The collaboration and cooperation of work teams. Optimism as an engine for new solutions.
What we do
We provide food support to community canteens and develop social projects in different parts of Argentina, with a value of respect for the rights of children, adolescents and families and with an eye on education, health, art and cultural, and social inclusion.
From our website, you may choose the canteen or project with which you want to collaborate. Thanks to more than 600 sponsors, we're able to work monthly on 18 projects throughout the country and most importantly, more than 3,500 children benefit from our help
Through Comparte, we seek to accompany the children of Villa Inflamable in their learning, training and development, in a non-formal educational space, in which they can strengthen their capacities, enhance their skills, express their wishes and concerns, access new experiences, interact and interact with other children and adults.
The workshop is developed on three main axes:
> Values: Respect for others, space, nature, non-violence, collaboration and solidarity.
> School support: we provide assistance in literacy, development of thinking and reasoning, and various topics according to the stage of schooling.
> Cultural workshops: once a month, a workshop is held with the aim of bringing the children closer to different disciplines so that they can explore, experiment, and express themselves: developing their various capacities, whether in music, painting, science, theater, literature, crafts, etc.
The general objective of Comparte is to accompany the childrens' growth, trying to expand as much as possible the resources and incentives available to it. We close each meeting by sharing a snack and on the last Saturday of the month, and we celebrate birthdays.
At Motivarte we want to create protagonists, we want adolescents to be architects of their present and future as adults, take on projects, investigate topics of their own interest, discover their skills, and learn about the tools available to them.
Instead of proposing a formal school space, we put ourselves at their service and we facilitate different workshops: specific school and educational support for the subjects they need, research and exposure of artistic techniques and disciplines that interest them. As well as talk about their concerns and problems.
We seek to provide the students with a space where they can share and integrate socially with their peers and other adults, and motivate them to reach to their maximum potential, broadening their intellectual, emotional and cultural horizons.
This project works on Saturdays in Villa Inflamable, for adolescents and young people between 13 and 20 years old, all in situations of social vulnerability. The funds collected are used to provide materials and generate opportunities that help advance the social progress of the participants.
In Evolucionarte, our protagonists take the stage. The real life scenario: adult life, where they begin to take their first steps with the values of Por Los Chicos and the tools acquired over the course of many years. This is the moment where they are able to begin to carry out their dream. The dream that they developed through each workshop, that hope of ... "When I grow up I want to be ..."
Our protagonists are already at the beginning of entering the university and their first job as an adult. For this reason, the Evolucionarte program is based on the utilization and further development of the acquired tools from the subsequent programs. A model of reflective thinking, vision of continuous improvement, and collective work analyzing its impact on society and the environment.
This project works on Saturdays in Villa Inflamable, for adolescents and young adults between 16 and 25 years of age, all of them in situations of social vulnerability.
The funds raised are used to provide materials, computing tools, strict educational scholarships, internship programs, and training of trades; aiming to cultivate a culture of collective work and search for opportunities that are conducive to social progress.
Walking we discover new worlds, new realities. Walking we think, we imagine, we create. Walking we dream, we explore the world. Therefore, we believe it is essential that every child participating in our projects has a new pair of shoes every Children’s day. The future gets closer through Big Steps.
