Fundación AVENIR: Education and Therapy Center and Support for Integration into ordinary Schools
The Fundación AVENIR is building, with support of CONADIS (Commission for the Integration of the Disabled) of the Argentinian State, the Education and Therapy Center and the Support for Integration into ordinary Schools in the neighborhood Villa 9 de julio in Arguello, northwest of the city of Córdoba. This is a suburban area where basic needs of assistance and social integration of children and adolescents with a mental disability are not met.
The main beneficiaries of the Fundación AVENIR are children and adolescents suffering a mental handicap, mainly psychic (for example autism, psychosis, and personality disorders), who couldn’t be included in the educational projects of ordinary schools (beneficiaries of the Education and Therapy Center) or who need support by means of specialized equipment to attend an ordinary school (beneficiaries of the Support for Integration into ordinary Schools). At the moment, AVENIR is supporting 50 to 80 direct beneficiaries, of whom 70% are children and women.
The area where the building is being built is dealing with social issues, with a high level of insecurity. Therefore, it is necessary to have a security system to guarantee the security and integrity of the beneficiaries and staff members and the protection of material assets.
The requested amount will be used to acquire and install a closed circuit TV monitoring system with an anti-intrusion and anti-fire system on the property where the building of the new headquarters of the organization is being built.
The objectives of this project are to:
-Guarantee the security and integrity of disabled persons who benefit from the Education and Therapy Center
-Protect the equipment of the Support Center for Integration into ordinary Schools
-Guarantee the long-term continuity of this project concerning the support of mentally disabled people
Budget: 3500 euro
