What do we do
Acompañar con Educación y Responsabilidad (ACER) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization (CSO - Civil Society Organization) dedicated to the prevention of child malnutrition and human development in underdeveloped neighborhoods.
Our comprehensive programs, based on Conin methodology and Montessori pedagogy, cover the areas of nutrition, human development, social focus and stimulation. Vulnerable populations in the Buenos Aires suburbs are served, specifically Villas La Cava and Uruguay in San Isidro & Villa Las Flores in Vicente López.
