Since Argentina's economic breakdown in 2001, Argentina has faced varying degrees of financial challenges, in particular a rise in poverty levels and a lack of proper funding for education, public services and community development. As a result, various non-governmental organizations have stepped up to the challenge and have begun developing programs that focus on strengthening community aid programs and stimulating local growth.
Despite its recent troubles, Buenos Aires, Argentina remains a beautiful capital city rich in both Latin American and European cultural influences. From the lively streets of La Boca to the chic waterside district of Puerto Madero to the tango-inspired and bohemian San Telmo neighbourhood, Buenos Aires offers an ideal environment for your unique Spanish and volunteer experience in Argentina.
