Subir al Sur works with two of the educational centers located in marginal neighborhoods. The "villa" (poor neighborhood) is a non-formal neighborhood, which has started small and has grown considerably over the years. In the slums, the majority of the inhabitants do not have access to basic services: only 5% have sewerage, 96% do not have gas, 76% do not have a formal connection to the public electricity system and 90% of the population does not have access to running water.
Hosting Situation (Board and Lodging)
Volunteers are received in our volunteer house, located in the City of Buenos Aires. They usually take their lunch at the project. It is important to be flexible in eating local food. For the rest of the meals, they will have what is necessary to cook in our house. Get ready to live in a community environment!
