Why Argentina?


Fundación Reciduca

Fundación Reciduca

By the end of 2001, Mr. Ernesto Kritz showed through an investigation performed on districts in the first urban belt of Greater Buenos Aires that over 80,000 people between 18 and 25 years old did not have a high school diploma This implied that they were unable to enter the labor market and, thus, they were excluded from society.

A group of people, aware that the country was going through difficult times which demanded the support of every citizen, joined in the aim of seeking a solution that might mitigate the social exclusion of young people.

Along 2002 a reality diagnosis was carried out and the result was that few institutions were taking care of those young people who were jobless and who had no studies. That’s how Reciduca Program comes up offering young people spaces for their education and for their job and environmental care training.

In 2003, in association with Fundacava, we started implementing the program in Santo Domingo Savio’s school with only 19 young students. Thanks to the effort of many collaborators the program worked, keeping their participants in school and showing that with higher opportunities young people may get involve with their future and become the leads of their lives.

The results obtained reinforced our commitment and in 2004 we obtained legal capacity and the program began to replicate in other schools.

Since then, and with the public and private sector and civil society’s support, we have grown towards becoming a worthy and sustainable society.

This program prevents dropout and promotes school completion seeking to stimulate students who are in their last two years of high school. We seek to help students with the school-to-work transition offering job training out of school hours to introduce young people to the culture of work and to improve their employability. It is focused on three main fields: study, job training and environmental care.

We provide a learning space for high school students for 16-20 years, in social vulnerability and risk of dropout. Young participants develop job skills while they learn about the process of growing and marketing of products in a school that is self-financing with harvested.

- Employment Service: Your first job: We provide companies with labor intermediation services, acting as a bridge between them and the students trained in Reciduca. We assist young people to get their first employment while we provide companies with a shortlist of committed and motivated candidates, coordination and monitoring.

- Tertiary Education: Students interested in continuing with their tertiary education are awarded with a grant and are monitored every fifteen days.

- An Empty Bottle, a Crowded Classroom: Bottle recycling generates economic resources to help young people finish high school.

- Recovery of Packaging Material: A solution to the companies’ waste such as cardboard, paper and plastic film which then are recycled with the purpose of generating resources to fund our educational programs.

- Recycling oil to educate: Waste vegetable oil is collected from restaurants of the northern districts of Greater Buenos Aires for biodiesel production. This transformation generates funds to continue financing the participation of young people in the Training Centre.
