Hungry for the future: journalism that makes a difference

According to the National Institute of Statistics and Census of Argentina (Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos or INDEC), 41.4% of Argentinian children and adolescents currently live in poverty. Alarmed by this measure, Fundación La Nación launched its Hambre de Futuro (“Hungry for the Future”) project.

This project explores childhood poverty in Argentina, highlighting stories of different families from the most vulnerable locations in the country. We hoped that the project would raise awareness among political leaders and civil society and put the structural problem of childhood poverty on local agendas. Our mission was to promote the protection of children’s rights by spreading their voice to help them meet their basic needs and secure their survival, protection and development.
