What a wonderful journey to "Buenos Aires" we could enjoy on 1 September 2021. Gauchos, tango dancers, artists and internationally known singers accompanied us through the 10th anniversary of "Cartoneros y sus Chicos".

 

It was an evening full of surprises.

To duly celebrate our 10th anniversary of the Foundation, we travelled to Buenos Aires for one evening. Around 300 guests from business, industry, politics, sports and show business as well as ambassadors from South America had bought "plane tickets" and enjoyed the evening with tango music, many international attractions and typical Argentinean food at the Aura in the centre of Zurich - of course in compliance with all necessary COVID measures. The President of the Foundation, Mr Pablo Kavulakian, also travelled from Buenos Aires for this gala evening.

During the evening, guests were able to have their drawings done by a caricaturist and marvel at the arts of a magician and football juggler. The founder of Mars City Design from Los Angeles gave a lecture on the micro-macro universe. A musical highlight was also not to be missed: The very well-known singer Loco Escrito thrilled the guests at the charity evening with his Latin American rhythms.

In the charity auction, which has already become a tradition, exclusive items were put up for auction and many prizes found happy winners in the raffle. The tennis racket of champion Roger Federer, several three-litre bottles of fine Argentinian red wine, weekends in renowned luxury hotels and contemporary art found proud new owners. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors once again.

We spent an unforgettable charity evening that we will all remember for a very long time.

"Cartoneros y sus Chicos" Patenschaften

Renata Jacobs and her team at the "Cartoneros y sus Chicos" Foundation are always looking for new ways to support the cartoneros and their children. Their motto is: "Mejor educación - mejor vida" (Better education - better life).

 

Already today, the foundation provides educational support and a safe and loving environment to more than 165 young people between the ages of 6 and 18.

 

The year 2020 was drastic for education all over the world: schools had to be closed and 1.5 billion children could not attend school. Argentina's long-running economic crisis is further exacerbated by the Corona pandemic - over 40% of Argentines have been living below the poverty line since the second half of 2020.

 

Like all children, our Cartoneros children have dreams. But they need our support to make them come true. You can help the children to get one step closer to their dreams.

 

As part of the 10th anniversary of the "Cartoneros y sus Chicos" foundation, 10 sponsorships for children have already been awarded at the Charity Night on 1 September 2021. More children would also like a sponsor to accompany them part of the way.

 

You too can become a sponsor and make it possible for a child to receive an annual contribution of
Swiss Francs 500,- you can give a child the chance of a better life.

 

You can find more information about Cartoneros sponsorships under Patenschaften

Dear friends and helpers of our Cartoneros events,

 

After my 2020 Annual Report, which all of you havereceived, we are now looking forward in this new year of 2021 with great expectations.

 

We all hope that the COVID situation around the worldwill be brought under control by the vaccines and that thepandemic will soon be a thing of the past.

 

Entering Argentina is still impossible since the borders areclosed to foreigners until further notice. In fact, a specialpermit is required to travel internally from one province toanother.

 

Schools in Argentina were closed for many months andour children were assigned homework by their teachers(over the Internet), which was then discussed with theirteachers.

 

Our foundation in Buenos Aires collected a lot of foodfrom private individuals and companies, playing an activerole in helping the Madreselvas families survive thepandemic.

 

We were pleased to hear the news that schools areofficially reopening today, 8 March, and that we can nowrestart tutoring our children.

 

Some 150 children have been registered to date and –though it may be hard to believe –another 88 children areon the waiting list. Unfortunately, things do not look goodfor those children, since our school is not able toaccommodate more than 150 students due to spacecapacity.

 

What's more? We all need to be aware that skill levelshave fallen due to the closure of schools almost a year ago.According to current studies by the DALE Foundation,57% of 140 children aged between 6 and 14 years areneither able to read nor write! That is an appalling andalso sad state of affairs.

 

This result forces us to work even more intensively withour children and to convince their parents also that only abetter education will make a better future and life for theirchildren.

 

We all now hope that the planned charity event on 3 June2021 at Restaurant AURA in Zurich can go ahead. Fingerscrossed!

 

See you soon.

 

Yours sincerely,

Renata

 

P.S. We also reserved 2 September 2021 as a second dateby way of precaution.

All schools in Argentina have been closed since mid-March due to the global pandemic. Our 150 Cartoneros children suffer from this situation but try to master their tasks from home.

The foundation`s teachers send them assignments via WhatsApp or deliver them personally, always in compliance with the protective measures, and support our children whenever necessary.

What do the Cartoneros and their children do during the pandemic?

In June and July 2020, beside the ongoing lockdown in Argentina, the Foundation “Cartoneros y sus Chicos” was able to establish and organise a red of free lunch service and donation of food supplies for the local community. The donations distributed included:

  • 9.000 kg of beans donated by «Cono S.A.»

  • 1.500 personal hygiene sets donated by «PG Argentina»

With the help of generous donations we are able to support our 71 families of the Cartoneros in times of quarantine and also the neighbouring families of our Cartoneros which total up to more then 4.000 people.

 

We would like to thank “El Soldado”, a local transportation and logistic company from Cordoba as well as our sincere gratitude towards “Cera Suiza” and Mrs Maria Soledad Senosiain who introduced the project and made the first contact happen.

On December 4th, our second charity event for "Cartoneros y sus Chicos" was held in Miami, generously organized by the Grosskopf family, who made available the beautiful facilities of Fendi Château Residences and offered a delicious dinner as well as contributing with exclusive works of art, jewelry and many beautiful prizes for the auction and raffle.

A group of 80 distinguished guests, mostly Argentinians residing in Miami, showed their solidarity to our cause and there was animated bidding for the items in the auction, in which we managed to raise an impressive sum of 150'000 US-Dollars.

The guests also enjoyed a Tango presentation and  danced to musical performances.

Grand opening of the new school building

On February 28th, 2019, the long wait came to an end and the new school building in Maquinista Savio, Barrio Pilar, was officially inaugurated.

Thanks to numerous donations from Switzerland we were able to build our school. Beautiful bright classrooms, a large kitchen and a large dining and nice lounge area were created – to the great delight of the children and their parents.
