LIFE Argentina is a nonprofit, civil society organization that works with the youth living in socially marginalized and extremely poor areas of Argentina. We carry out a wide variety of programs and activities that aim to provide for the healthy development, happiness, and future of the children we support. We work regularly with youth living in poverty, providing them with recreational, educational, and social activities, as well as food, clothing, and supplies.
We work collaboratively with community centers and soup kitchens in the city of Buenos Aires and nearby areas. We also work in the Guaraní indigenous village of Perutí in the province of Misiones. We have the distinction of having no paid staff, which means that all of our projects and activities are carried out completely by volunteers. At present, we finance ourselves through small donations from current and former volunteers, and different collaborators, fundraising campaigns, and special donations from members of our executive committee. We also receive generous material and food donations from various companies.
