ARGENTINA STUDENT'S HOME
Fundacion Si was established in Argentina in 2012 by a group of friends who wanted to address disadvantage with 6 key programs. These programs are aimed at Street kids and the homeless and the disadvantaged rural communities denied educational opportunities.
The organization receives no government funding and it totally managed and staffed by volunteers.
One of the key programs is to provide poor rural students where less than 1 in 100 attend university (1 in 10 in the cities) with an opportunity to gain further education and therefore become catalysts to change in their country and communities.
This outcome is achieved by building and providing free of charge student accommodation and the services associated with this accommodation. To date 5 homes have been established housing on average 23 students a home.
DBL funded a new home for the program.
