Fondacio in Chile : Project Mi Proximo
Mi proximo is a solidarity program that helps people living in marginality, in extreme poverty, in a street situation.
In Chile, 4.5% of the population lives in extreme poverty (Casen survey 2015). 12% live in a street situation (2nd national cadastre), 20% manage to get out of their street situation and reintegrate into society.
Fondacio began in 2006 the accompaniment to these people. In addition to seeking to accompany people in street situations with material help, friendship and words of encouragement, Mi próximo wants to network organizations that work with people living in street situations, through a WebApp. Thus, it seeks to improve the general service for people in a street situation in Santiago.
