Who we are

Who we are

We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder is someone who, instead of offering provisional help, gets to know a community and its people, its weaknesses and strengths. In this way, we build a strong relationship with each community. A relationship that lasts a life time.

Redefining Concepts in Terms of Solidarity Economy: Questions to be asked

Redefining Concepts in Terms of Solidarity Economy: Questions to be asked

From Pacheco Community, as well as from many social organizations, we believe that some terms and concepts must be questioned and resignified: economic growth, progress, development, just to mention a few.

The real side of La Boca: Part 2

The real side of La Boca: Part 2

This historical neighborhood, aside from distinguishing itself as one of the funding areas of Buenos Aires, holds in its history political activism, resistance and working class heroism. The alternative tour that Argentinian guide Nicolás Cancino does, offers a different view of the typical cheerful and tango esque side of la Boca.

The real side of La Boca: Part 1

La Boca is often known for its famous Caminito street and for having one of the most popular stadiums in the world, La Bombonera, but what many people don’t know is how this neighborhood originated and what goes beyond the couple of blocks filled with tourists and colorful houses.

Buenos Aires was a city built by immigrants. You can notice this in a variety of details, one being its architecture. If you pay attention to the city's buildings and houses you'll get to see a mixture of different styles coming from French, Italian, Spanish and many different cultures. Hence the melange of art, tradition. words and food that are part of the porteño's identity.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Applying at our volunteer opportunities you will be able to experience this first hand and be able to admire the beauty of this amazing city.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #travelabroad #travelwithpurpose #visitsouthamerica #visitargentina #buenosaires #argentina2019 #volunteeropportunities #volunteerwork #workabroad #volunteerprogram #volunteeringabroad #volunteers2019 #volunteertrip #volunteertogether #responsibletourism #travelandhelp #travelcommunity #volunteercommunity #communityservice #buildcommunity #communitybuilding #communitydevelopment #socialchange #socialchangemakers #communityleaders #leadership #leadershipdevelopment

📷 by @alliugosoliphotography . . I was studying and working in the community center in my barrio where I met Valeria, there we came up with the idea to build a Lavandería to help the youth, almost 10 years ago. Right now we are going through a difficult time here in Argentina which has to do a lot with our government and the inflation of our currency and prices here in BA. All the workers here are students, sometimes they stay for a while sometimes they don't. Some of the people that come here do not have any prior working experience and some do, this place is to grow anyone's work experience to raise the availability of finding jobs. Summer and winter break season is our highest demand time since hotels and hostels are very busy. Right now it is very difficult to find more business because of the economic situation. The places that are able to stay open and thrive are those who work with big syndicates to sustain that level of demand. Although this is happening we are finding a way to stay afloat and come out of this with good standing. The biggest part that affects us is when our clients themselves close down due to a decrease in business, especially nowadays. We also do work with a bigger laundry service that has bigger facilities, bigger machines, more workers and more clients; when they receive a client that does not require they're level of service they bring them to us since we are a smaller business, as to not lose money themselves and help us out as well. The Lavandería is a place of opportunity and growth, students here are able to gain work experience and learn a craft which will help them along their way." . .
