Transforming Faces believes in empowering our partners with the skills, such as fundraising, so that they can secure their own funding and become self-sufficient.
When Fundación Gavina, our project in Argentina, signed a lease agreement at their current location, the owner as well as members of the Tucumán Rotary Club visited.
In 2011, the president of the Tucumán Rotary Club presented a funding proposal to Fundación Gavina for $20,000. This was recently increased to $50,000. The grant allowed them to train their orthodontic professionals, as well as purchase much needed dental, orthodontic and office equipment.
