Who we are
We are a group of motivated Argentines, each of us from different backgrounds, who live in the UK and got together to create a space where we can connect, support each other and help those who need it the most back in our homeland.
What we want
We want to witness a positive change and we want to be a part of it.
What we do
We organise activities to promote networking among the Argentinian community in the UK, so that they can make the best out of their expertise and potential.
We sponsor projects of Argentinian NGOs that work with the disadvantaged. Two new projects are chosen every two years following an open call. We take part in activities and organise events to fundraise for them, as a way of maintaining bonds with our country.
We hold monthly meetings in London, where we brainstorm for activities, introduce newcomers, socialise and set our schedule for charitable work.
Most of our meetings are now hybrid to allow participation from anywhere and all our work, from top to bottom, is done voluntarily.
Where we come from
More than twenty years ago, 19 people as forward looking as today’s APARU’s members, met for the first time to network and strengthen the bonds of the Argentinian community in the UK.
They followed all the statutory steps until APARU came to existence as a registered charity, with a name and a clear purpose.
Soon after the crisis of 2001 in Argentina, they revisited APARU’s mission and a new goal was set, that of sponsoring projects in Argentina by fundraising in the UK.
Since then on, we’ve been holding monthly meetings in pursuit of our mission.
But this is the short version of the story. To know more details and who made this visionary group, go to…
