Paulo Freire Community Center from Fundacion SES (ARG-26)


Type: Human Rights: Advocacy - Country: Argentina

Brief description and main aims

This project condenses the work we have been doing at SES Foundation for 20 years with hundreds of social organizations and in coordination with the state. We are convinced that there is no other way to build and promote rights. This project seeks social inclusion and the expansion of rights through access to training, knowledge and technology.
 
The SES foundation, through the Subir al Sur program, aims to promote volunteering as a non-formal intercultural education. Also, it motivates education for peace by facilitating the meeting of people from different regions of the world with solidarity goals.
