THE ANGLO-ARGENTINE SOCIETY IS PROUD TO SUPPORT TWO CHARITIES IN ARGENTINA THIS YEAR:
INGLES PARA MI FUTURO (ROSARIO DISTRICT)
The Anglo-Argentine’s partner organisation in Argentina is the ABCC (Argentine British Community Council). We are proud to support “Ingles para mi futuro”, the ABCCs new venture in Rosario. This after-school project was launched in July 2018 to teach English to marginalised children aged 11 and 12. It is based at St Bartholomew’s Anglican Church Community Hall. They also provide books and food for the children. In December 2018 we donated funds raised at the Ambassador’s Gala Dinner last October to pay for two teachers in 2019.
CRICKET SIN FRONTERAS
Cricket Sin Fronteras is a social inclusion project launched in 2010 which teaches cricket to improve the lives of marginalised and vulnerable young boys and girls in Buenos Aires. It has now grown to include 1500 young people, whose lives are given meaning by learning this very British but also very international sport. Donations are needed for transport, training and food, also for their associated workshops run by the project: welding, carpentry, cooking, and much more. In 2017 the team toured the Vatican to play against St Peter’s Cricket Club. The Anglo Argentine Society is helping to raise funds to buy a minibus for the project.
WE THANK MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS FOR HELPING US TO RAISE FUNDS AT OUR EVENTS.
