Argentine Children March against Hunger
Today 4,000 very poor children marched through Buenos Aires.
In Buenos Aires
12 March 2007 - 2010
We opened an informal school for very poor out-of-school children.
Just 20 minutes from city centre.
Dr. Elizabeth trains in Peru to help direct our project in Buenos Aires. We open our first centre the second week of March 2007.
Elizabeth is an attorney by profession, and has many years experience in Buenos Aires. We consider ourselves fortunate to have the help of someone like Dr. Liz.

Bruce Argentina's latest Center The 3 steps we pursue to successfully get Latin America's out-of-school children [20% of all kids] into education programmes.:
1- Find the children
2- Teach them, then integrate them into regular schools.
3-
Launch a campaign to make the Government recognize these children and tae over our work of getting them educated.

It takes 2 Years !. When we find a child, convince the mother to let us get him or her educated, take them into our little school, give them their first lessons; finally get them up to the level of education for their age, and matriculate them into a state school (paying for uniforms and all expenses): our work for that child is only just begun (2 years)

NEW Bruce Peru Centre in Cajamarca 05.10.2005
We continue to work with each child, and will do so for the next two years. Visiting every month for a "Club Meeting" , at which we monitor their progress, give prizes, work with their techers, our Social Workers see how things are going at school, at home: and we pay for wehatever their parents cannon or will not. We do this for two years.

Bruce Argentina's latest Center Open Sept. 2004, The Bruce Argentina Centre, Puerto Malabrigo (AKA Puerto Chicamam) is living up to our expectations for the 'small city' model of our program.

Each country in Latin America has about 20% of its children not attending school. But Governments do not admit this, nor does UNICEF. We, however, know these children are out there, and we can prove it. We can also demonstrate that it is relatively simple to help them into school and to keep them there. We have done this every place we set up.
Street children need  help...... Street kids,
..........They come to us
..........as they are;
we make of them
..........what they let us
they crave love, need direction......ready for school
