El Desafío Foundation is a nonprofit organisation empowering children in Argentina to kick poverty’s ass.
What we do
By and for children
We work with youngsters between 7 and 18 years old – and their families – in the slums Moreno and La Lata in Rosario, Argentina on innovative social programs. What makes us so innovative and effective? We develop all programs together with the youngsters. Our main goal is to develop life skills so they can shape their future themselves. We created different programs, like a coding program preparing youngsters for the digital future. And a cooking program teaching them to serve the most delicious dishes with help of the best chefs of Rosario.
Besides our work in the different neighborhoods we stimulate social change in the rest of the city by initiatives in public space, like street art, mini-libraries and events.
