In addition to the specific work axes defined by Banco Macro Foundation, we also support different local organizations that respond to nutrition, social medicine, integration issues and other major projects.
- The main objective is to create a partnership with the community that assists with the communal kitchen kitchen, where the mothers themselves are responsible for: buying food, preparing lunch, and receiving training tools to make the project more sustainable. This project is to be supervised by a team of nutritionists that guide and accompany these women.
- This program is active in the dining rooms and picnic areas in the provinces of Salta, Jujuy, Misiones and Tucumán.
- WARMI Center in Puna Jujeña.
- One of the most innovative projects, which we began to follow back in 2012, takes place in Abra, Pampa, Jujuy, with the collaboration of Warmi Civil Association, Siglo XXI University (specialized in virtual and distance education) and other organizations. This program allows young Coyas to experience trainings in their hometown with the central objective that once the children are trained, they apply their newly learned knowledge to help improve the life quality in their families and communities. The 5 students who continue studying come from indigenous
- communities, in the departments of Santa Catalina, Yaví, Rinconada, Cochinoca, Humahuaca, Susques, Tumbaya.
