Fundación Nordelta

Las Tunas is a highly impoverished neighborhood outside of Buenos Aires. Its residents experience high rates of unemployment, adolescent pregnancy, and school dropout—the latter because young people leave school so they can contribute to family income. Fundación Nordelta was founded in 2002 to improve health, education, community development, and employment for the residents of Las Tunas.

EMpower’s second grant to Fundación Nordelta will provide sports activities, personal and leadership development classes, educational support, computer classes, job-readiness training, and mentoring to 54 youth from Las Tunas and invite 30 new youth to their “Youth Space.”
