El Bordo (Argentina) -- An initiative of solidarity

El Bordo is a town of 6400 inhabitants whose main source of income is work on nearby plantations. It has a central square and town hall, two public schools and a public library.

For several years, El Bordo has been the site of a solidarity and social cooperation project thanks to forty university women and young professionals who seek to put the social teaching of the Church into practice. Most of them are students who take part in the means of formation offered by the Opus Dei Prelature at the Montes Grandes Center in San Isidro, Buenos Aires.

The initiative has the support of the town mayor, who has made the Technical School’s housing facilities available for the young women.
