Flete Programa Sume Materiales

With AR$700, we can cover our transport costs for one day, collecting donations of materials in our Sume Materiales program.聽 We avoid waste, and enable low-income families access to construction materials and items for their homes.

Cr茅ditos para Viviendas

With AR$1,000 we can provide a micro loan of this amount so that a family can improve their home. 聽The Foundation provides technical and social support.

Our mission is to contribute to the support and development of individuals and families, by means of programs that enable access to a decent home.

1.聽聽 To support and strengthen the dignity of individuals and families who live in substandard conditions, encouraging their abilities in leadership, organization, and creativity.

2.聽聽 To generate opportunities for the people who participate in our programs to participate in new ways, and develop themselves both personally, and as part of their community.

3.聽聽 To stimulate participating families to make a commitment in terms of work and economic effort, by paying back the loan.

4.聽聽 To make the families aware that sharing what we have, helps us to grow together.

5.聽聽 To contribute to the development of a closer and more equal society.

Construction Program: In most cases, this program helps to provide families access to their own home.聽 In other cases, the objective is to improve substandard homes, or to provide services, such as the installation of natural gas.聽 In all projects, we start with the integration and organization of the community.聽 In this way, 200 new homes have been built, and more than 170 families have gained access to natural gas.

Sume Materiales: This is a self-sustaining program, that acts as a link between those who have construction materials and items for the home that they no longer need, and those that need them.聽 We collect the materials from the home or company, repair them if necessary, and sell them at a price in accordance with the economic situation of the families.聽 More than 3,500 families have benefited to date from buying materials at a symbolic price.

Home Improvement Program 鈥 ProMeVi: Provides group micro loans on a solidarity lending basis, for the construction or gradual improvement of the home, together with technical and social support and advice.聽 The program carries out its activities in the northern part of Greater Buenos Aires, where to date more than 3,000 families have taken part.
