Description

Love Volunteers is supporting a wonderful Argentine NGO which, since its founding in 2000, has been committed to improving the state of children's nutrition throughout the country. Working in more than 20 Argentinian institutions, the NGO aims to educate children about healthy eating habits. About 3,500 underprivileged children have benefited from the efforts of this program, which has, in turn, provided them with an opportunity to have a better life and the possibility of enjoying social inclusion.

Every day on this program, volunteers give technical and educational assistance to hundreds of Argentine children and their families. Aside from this, more than 500 generous individuals and private corporations have helped through donations to make the program founder's original dream come true. International volunteers can give their time to be part of this enlightening experience.
