The Feet Up Group is compromised to help the less fortunate people, during our history we have done some donations to various non-profit organizations worldwide that are in need.
Above mentioned donations are prompt and efficient, always meeting the need of the people that receive them.
Our donations are delivered directly to the institutions we work with. We don´t deal with intermediaries organizations.
In the last year the Feet Up Group have bought the school supplies for more than 120 pupils and a freezer to maintain their food eatable.
The organization benefited was the Escuela Rural nº 191 (Rural School) in Picada Vasca, Misiones in Argentina, and these actions can be seen through the photos taken during the delivery process to the destinations established.
Misiones is located in Picada Vasca. it is part of Oberá Municipality on the Northeast of Argentina, in a province called Misiones. Most people living there work in the rural areas and nearly 25% of the population lives below the poverty line, and more than a 5% live a situation of abject poverty (INDEC, 2009). This makes of the area the poorest region of the whole country.
What we already did:
We first talked to Mariela, the Rural School nº 191 protectress, and checked what was the children needs. Checking their website one can see their school has almost no material to study or play for the youngest. Besides, most of the 120 pupils at the school have to walk everyday 5 km to get to the school and then 5 more km to go back home.
Thus, we understood the first step was to get a big fridge for them to be able to keep food eatable, and some new school supplies such as educative games and books.
What we want to do next:
Our next step is to provide these children with new footwear and more school supplies, which is the school priority for next season. To achieve it we would like you to participate and get involved.
Why we do it?
We believe that small things supported by many people can make a big difference. All together, we can help lots of children to have a worthy life.
