"I would like to highlight the work methodology that supports the project and all the accompaniment given to the applicants (previous studies, informative meetings with the applicants, selection of the families, meetings in the village, training in the business plan, accompaniment with social workers to the families, conformation of local commissions, institutional strengthening, articulation with the provincial and local public sector, improvements in the local infrastructure, housing, etc.) In relation to this, the work they have done throughout the process is far superior to the work and planning methodologies usually used by the State."

"People live where they can, not where they want. People do not see where to go from the city.  When you are desperate you follow a trend. My family move to Rosario because they thought they will find there an opportunity, but they did not.  This program gave me an enormous opportunity. I feel happy here, we live in community, we feel welcomed. I grew as a person, my kids feel freedom, every morning I open my window, I feel the wind on my face and see the nature. I cannot ask for more. ”

"The visibility of opportunities this program brought to our village, gave an impulse we could have not achieved alone, even in 20 years. I am confident that in 20 years more we will really see what it means”
