A World On A Bike


Traveling by bicycle means traveling slowly and without haste, for that reason there are places where my trip is detained longer.

At that moment the possibilities open up to start up photography and video documentary projects that I offer to the foundations that work in the place and where my own projects also arise to help improve the quality of life of the most disadvantaged by various social problems, is my grain of sand.

In the middle of the Iguazu Falls, in a place recognized as one of the 7 wonders of humanity, children live in garbage dumps, many of them with malnutrition. You will be unaware of this reality because the local governments hide this problem from tourism.

During my stay as a volunteer in a hostel in the city I started a project to give a voice to these children and initiated a campaign to receive donations of food in the various hotels in the city. In this way I intended to create awareness and critical thinking to the visitors of the place and generate a dynamic of collaboration to improve the lives of these children.

Puerto Iguazú, in the north of Argentina, as I said before, is one of the most famous places in the world due to the waterfalls that bear its name.

It is a place where millions of dollars are generated from tourism, but which do not result in an improvement in the standard of living of its citizens.

In this city there are daily power cuts, drinking water does not reach many parts of the city, and when it rains the sewage system overflows, which in reality ends up running over the surface and causing sanitary problems.

They were The Landless, now they have some land to put their precarious house but they are still the forgotten ones, they are the invisible ones.

I have been fortunate to meet Ricardo Aranda, a citizen with no other ambition than to improve the lives of these people mistreated by indifference and unfairly branded as profiteers of the system for receiving little or no aid, not at the national level but at the municipal level.

Ricardo Aranda

Together with Ricardo Aranda, his family, and other traveling volunteers we are working to organize a network of help that can remain in time and in the not too distant future begin to implement education programs through training workshops that allow food self-sufficiency and income improvement.

There will be volunteers specialized in permaculture, social and solidarity economy that will help the development of the project and its sustainability, thus ensuring that these children have a decent life and a future.

The first phase is to feed these children and start with training workshops for parents in order to generate a sustainable economy.

To do this we have divided the way you can help into two sections.

One is the monetary one where the funds raised are used to have a food bank with which Ricardo Aranda together with local volunteers can cook and feed the children.

We want to consolidate as a foundation but we need a push to be able to do it!

We have a space where we intend to give training workshops for parents. These workshops are pastry and bakery, as well as handicrafts and permaculture. The latter will teach them to grow their own food and thus obtain food sovereignty. In this space we also want to build a bigger kitchen so that we can help more children.

A part of these funds will also be used to improve the roofs of the houses to cover them from the rains, as well as to build latrines with sanitation that will prevent diseases. (All the expenses for the workshops as well as each of the processes will be audited).

The other way to help is by volunteering. This form of collaboration is for all those travelers who come to Iguazu Falls or its surroundings and who want to contribute a part of their time and collaborate in a direct way.

We need all kinds of professionals. Preferably people with experience in ;

Agricultural engineers

And all people who have experience with children and who can contribute to the community. For volunteer applications you can fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. 

We want to make known this invisible problem that hides the children who go hungry in Iguazú.

When food arrives to these forgotten areas, the eyes of the children who receive it reflect again that lost hope and smile.
