The Emmanuel Foundation is a non-profit organization, independent of any religious denomination. Based in La Plata, the NGO supports and helps hundreds of families living in precarious situations.
In the sixties, two Argentinian students came to study, in the social field, at the UCL: Maria Elvira and Luis Maria.
A few years later, back in Argentina they founded the « Fundación Emmanuel ».
In 1992, their youth friends decided to create a Belgian branch, to provide moral and economic support to the association. : Emmanuel Argentine asbl
Since then several generations have passed.... all of us in the asbl, we work 100% voluntarily giving a little bit of our time to fight for the rights of the child.
Many of us shared the day to day for months (or years) in the foundation, others went to get to know this wonderful place, we all HAVE THE CONVICTION THAT WORKING TOGETHER AFTER A SOLIDARITY OBJECTIVE ALL DREAMS CAN BE CONCRETED.
