Project Details

A local community aiming at increasing the general living conditions of the people living in their neighbourhood, in the suburbs of Buenos Aires.

The ever growing population of Buenos Aires and this disappearance of work places has created huge suburbs that are no longer able to respond to the needs of the people living there and Buenos Aires today has over 40% of it’s population living in poverty. One of these regions is La Matanza, counting about 2.5 million inhabitants and located 50 kilometers from the center.

In this region, Identidad Vecinal was created 9 years ago. More than just an organisation, we are a big family and a local community that strives to increase living conditions for all the people living here. We count over 70 members and work in various fields of work. As the government does not officially help most of these regions around Buenos Aires, we have to manage all of the daily challenges themselves.
