Two years later, the Mercedes García de Taratuty primary school was inaugurated in the 1° de Mayo neighborhood, with “Luli”, the teacher who had requested the water pump, as director of the establishment, and in which we deposited all our love». narrated.

We provide breakfast, lunch and snacks. In addition to the “doña Mercedes orchestra”, the establishment has an agreement with the Inter de Milan where they learn values ​​with football. The high school boys also have canteen administration, the youth club, and the elementary school has its garden commission,” said María.

We have presence in 11 cities of the Republic where we focus on education and health. The activity of the Foundation is enormous. We are three initial founders but I am assisted by a group of more than 100 people », he added.
