Tercera Seccion del DeltaBuenos Aires, AR


As every year, FundaciĆ³n Agreste is carrying out a campaign of collection and delivery of donations, motivated in the hope that all, and especially the most vulnerable populations, receive a gift on this special date.

We propose live a part of the Parana's Delta, one of the five largest deltas in the world, in a special way: helping those in need.

Knowing the Delta means appreciating a gift of nature, an extraordinary place that you can not miss when visiting Argentina.

Departing from Buenos Aires, we will travel to Tigre to take a boat and sail to the third section of islands, about 3 hours away.

At school we will make repairs in the building, the garden and the sports area, we will share classes with children and have opportunity to take walks and tours at these privileged areas and lush landscaping.

[The final detailed timetable of activities is delivered to the registered 10 days before the travel date].
