SOS Children’s Villages began its work in Argentina in 1979 on the outskirts of the small city of Oberá. An SOS Kindergarten provides preschool lessons for up to 100 children in six groups. The SOS Gmeiner School offers an education to up to 490 primary school children and 430 secondary school students. Vocational subjects at the school include electrical engineering, carpentry, tailoring, IT, and bakery, to name a few. Adult education courses that are open to the community are held here in the evenings.
