- When? Projects have flexible dates and run all year round
- Where? Cordoba, Argentina
This programme in Argentina is packed with excursions; ensuring volunteers will leave with a new understanding of the challenges to both the human rights in Argentina and the country as a whole! A group who are passionate about human rights and have an interest in Spanish would be perfect for this project, as well as anyone who plans to get involved with human rights work or law in the future.
During this project the group will learn about the history and culture of Argentina, through visits to museums and participating in exciting workshops. You will get involved in human right issues with the guidance of local social workers and our in-house lawyer. By living alongside people in Cordoba’s poor communities your group will gain a much deeper understanding of their daily lives and the hurdles, created by poverty, crime and xenophobia that they have to overcome.
This tailor-made project combines both an informative aspect with a very fun and relaxed atmosphere. Your group will stay together with a local host family in Cordoba and receive daily Spanish lessons, which will provide the perfect opportunity for you to engage with the locals better. There is also an option to stay in a hostel or hotel for the duration of your stay. The most exciting part of this particular project is that each and every day is different; showcasing unique aspects of the culture and Cordoba’s surrounding areas.
As well as evening social activities, at the weekend the group can visit some traditional villages in the hills. There is the exciting chance to visit the famous Argentine socialist revolutionary, Che Guevara’s, childhood home. Your group could also visit the Pan de Azucar Mountain or explore many of the nearby national parks and lakes.
