Ciudadania Solidaria carried out the project “Desarrollo Sustentable, Necesidades Básicas Insatisfechas” (“Sustainable Development, for Unmet Basic Needs”) in four schools in the department of Rivadavia, province of Salta. The project carried out in together with Ciudadanía Solidaria was carried out in the schools N° 4568 in Pozo El Chañar and N° 4467 in Pluma de Pato. This project consisted of creating a vegetable garden and a farm in order to promote the sustainable development and help meet basic needs. At the same time, Ciudadania Solidaria also provided additional workshops offering the necessary training in this regard.
The objective of the project was to provide fresh food, to achieve better nutrition for the school population and to improve living conditions.
Through a final contribution of 4,300 euros, the Foundation was able to collaborate with the purchase of construction materials (bricks, cement, sand, wires) and materials to be used for maintenance (hoses, tanks, buckets, shovels, etc.).
