After-School Program

Our center has 45 after-school students. School is half day in Argentina, so our students come to the center after school and have a warm lunch. They do their homework at the center and receive one-on-one tutoring when necessary. Most children stay all afternoon, read books, play games and do puzzles. In many cases the “Isla de Niños” is the only place where there is a table for the children to sit at and a caring adult to work with them.

As our families cannot afford to buy school material and mandatory school-uniforms, we provide the children in our care with the necessary school supplies. We also buy the most important textbooks to have them available at the centers.
