HistoryAgapao Argentina was founded by Ana Manrique and Daniel Palomar in the month of June of the year 2005. It was during 2001, a difficult year, where he settled in the city of Grand Bourg , a community dining room where two hundred and fifty people were served every day, later extending to social work with a group of street children at the Retiro station, in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. We could not ignore the great need of people. From that moment the idea of founding a humanitarian aid organization called; Agapao Argentina.
VolunteeringThe social volunteering, body of action of Agapao Argentina , is a group of people who, voluntarily and selflessly, execute the various social, cultural and sports activities. The motivation of volunteering is altruistic and selfless actions to perform free of charge the solidarity tasks they assume of their own free will, thus dedicating their time with love, respect and solidarity spirit.
