Abstract and Objectives:

The objective of the project is to repair a room which is presently not possible to use, and also a library space from the Rural School EBG Nr. 287.
This is school is situated in a poor rural area, has a gallery and two classrooms, a small deposit, a kitchen and a small space used by the teachers.
As one of the classrooms is not in conditions, the 30 children (from 5 to 14) receive lessons in one classroom. The space for the library is also damaged and needs to be repaired. Students coming to this school are from poor families.
Some of them survive with their own small farm (vegetables, fruits and chicken). Others need as well to work temporarily in different big farms existing in that geographical area. Only two of these families have electrical services.
Teachers have to travel daily 26 km via difficult roads, this is the only way to be there and teach these children. This geographical area of Argentina is very hot, with some very cold days. Most of children go to school barefooted and without sufficient clothing.
The parents help with the work necessary at school, in order to improve it. The work is mostly done by volunteers and family members of the schools, with the exception of the “machimbre”. Members of the Evangelic Church will contribute as volunteers for the electrical installations.
