A group of well-known leaders of the Argentine community and from AMIA created Fundacion Tzedaká to promote and encourage the philanthropic contributions destined to provide and answer to the growing social needs.
The growth of poverty forced us to implement a new system of social assistance, based in the interaction between the work of professionals and volunteers together with the creation of alliances with different institutions of the community.
The TZEDAKA Neighbourhood was created. We joined the Network of Volunteers. We expanded our help to other provinces in the country (together with AMIA and the JDC). The Community Medicine Bank was created. An Assistance Program for Holocaust Survivors Program is implemented, (with the financial support of the Claims Conference) and projects were developed to ease the consequences of the socioeconomic crisis: women’s health, paediatric check-ups. Local fundraising increases by a 90% while at the same time international financial assistance decreases.
Social development programs are put into action in the areas of health, education and housing, which aim to strengthen the abilities of children and young adults, and to improve the living conditions of seniors, also open to beneficiaries from AMIA, Jabad Lubavitch, Sefaradíes y Joint. The Center for Job Training for Young adults is created, the High School Contention Program and the co-financing for the NET Program of College Schollarships is incorporated.
The positioning of Fundacion Tzedaká is consolidated among other national social organizations. The articulated work with other social organizations and with the government was reinforced. New educational programs are created and the distribution of medicines is multiplied through out the country.
