During 2022 we accompanied
Family Child Development Program
We work on malnutrition diagnosis and prevention as well as nutritional recovery of children aged 0 to 5 years old. We follow the CONIN methodology, which sets forth a comprehensive approach to the social problems leading to malnutrition.
We have interdisciplinary teams of professionals specialized in pediatrics, nutrition, and early stimulation, as well as social workers, professors of trades and skills, health educators and kindergarten teachers, offering treatment, care and support to mothers and children.
Mothers participate weekly in health education talks and training workshops in trades.
Kids receive nutritional control and early stimulation, and participate in recreational and educational activities in our kindergarten rooms. Nutritional and social surveys are carried out in kindergartens, dining sectors, and rural areas in all surrounding areas in order to detect and identify children that require treatment.
Treated children are given milk which is often individually specialized to include necessary vitamins according to each child’s nutritional requirements.

In the city of Añatuya we also have a house designated for mothers and their children who have had to leave their homes due to various situations of violence or high social risk.
ALLIANCE "EL IMPENETRABLE"
In coordination with Cuerpo&Alma, Monte Adentro and Aéreo, this project, which began in 2021, seeks to achieve the comprehensive sustainable development of rural communities in “El Impenetrable”, Chaco province, (“Misión Nueva Pompeya” and the rural areas “Güemes”, “Pozo del Toba”, “Laguna Araujo” and “Nueva Población”), promoting and accompanying programs in four priority axes: education, health, training for work with an entrepreneurial imprint and community strengthening.
From Haciendo Camino, we intermediate with our Family Child Development and Trades Programs.
With the aim to prevent and eradicate child desnutrition, a nutritionist from our team helds nutritional attentions, alimentary counseling, pregnancy follow up and health training workshops for mothers in the communities.
As regards the Trades Program, once a week two types of workshops are held: cooking and sewing for women, with the objective of strengthening ties and providing practical training and support, so that they can undertake enterprises with the capacity to generate income and improve their lives.
For its part, Cuerpo&Alma makes monthly trips using doctors from different specialties to provide care in each of the places and coordinates an annual campaign in which more doctors and surgical specialties are added.
Monte Adentro provides school support classes and sports spaces aimed at children and teenagers in the communities.
Aéreo association deals with the monthly transfer of doctors to the Impenetrable and patients who need referrals.
Together, the four organizations worked towards community strengthening. We have a local coordinator and two family operators who visit homes in order to generate bonds, relieve needs and accompany families towards their own management of problem solving and development of local projects.
