Argentina: Ocho de Mayo informal settlement
At the Jiménez family's home, a photograph hanging on the wall shows the past of the building, which used to host the community-run soup kitchen.
In a place ignored by politicians, the community group has taken charge of services that should be provided by the government. Each morning, four people collect the trash with horse carts. The group also organizes training programs, health counseling and micro-enterprise initiatives. Most notably, a community-run soup kitchen feeds children and destitute families. The community center they run also serves as a social meeting point.
