Thanks to the spectacular support of our donors, we were able to finish the new building of the Satellite School 373/01 in Paraje El Button, El Soberbio, in the province of Misiones, now officially called «
Guillermo J. Donaire«.

For many years we have worked together with our partners and donors to build a better future for children and adolescents who live in one of the poorest areas of the country; this is a dream come true.

We are proud to announce that we are working together with Pequeños Pasos, a non-profit organization founded in Buenos Aires, and we are joining our efforts to realize this project. They assembled an incredible team of builders, carpenters, electricians, and skilled workers to build the new school consisting of 2 classrooms, 2 children’s bathrooms, a handicapped bathroom, a kitchen, and the Principal’s office in less than three months. 

Last Monday, March 9, 2020 was the official launch of the new school and the new academic school year. With the presence of local authorities, community families, neighboring schools and members of the 3 Foundations involved, it was the 2020 school year began and the school was officially opened.

We believe that every child has the right to access a quality education and our goal was to provide that to this wonderful group of students, teachers, and Principal.

Today the Satellite School has 25 children who walk 5 to 8 kilometers every day to attend classes and have access to education and nutrition. It is located in the middle of the missionary jungle and the dirt roads make access to the school difficult, especially during the rainy season.

The school has been a part of our outreach program for over 10 years. Thanks to the doctors and volunteers from the Santa Clara Civil Association who put us in contact with this community, we decided to join and support them in different ways. Santa Clara’s team of doctors, dentists, nurses, and volunteers have been visiting this community for 20 years. Children receive breakfast and lunch during the school year; these being sometimes the only foods they eat during the day. During these last years, we have built 2 bathrooms adjacent to the old building, we repaired the roof, the floors and the kitchen, we provided them with furniture, school supplies, toys, clothes, shoes, tools, kitchen utensils and first aid supplies. A well was made to provide drinking water not only to the school but to the entire community that benefited from this indispensable improvement. We sent a generator, we helped them start a vegetable garden, and a workshop with machinery to make espadrilles and joggins was set up.

In 2017, after the sudden death of our dear friend and president of our Foundation, the Director of the school requested that the school be named after Guillermo. The Ministry of Education approved the petition and plans to build a new school were launched.

Thanks to your help and generosity, the lives of these children have received a great positive impact, not only improving their quality of life, but also the opportunity to learn in better conditions and dream of a better future. Thank you for choosing us to be the link between your generosity and the thousands of children who need help.

Thanks to your help, one more child will be able to smile today!
