Monday (16th) was “el Día del Niño” (“Children’s Day”) in Paraguay. To celebrate with our local community, we turned part of our Nueva Italia I plantation into a small fun park. We invited the children from the area, many of which are from poor families.
We had a clown show, bouncing castles, a magician, trampolines, music, and more activities. We also provided free food (burgers, hot dogs, etc.), soft drinks, and free toys to take home. The attendance was almost overwhelming as health & safety restrictions meant we were only allowed to let 60 in at a time. Seeing the joy and the smiles on the kids’ faces was heartwarming.
Our company ethos has always been that we want to be part of our communities in Paraguay and that we want them to share and benefit as well from our success. This event is just one of many things we do to give something back, especially to the less privileged.
If you want to invest in agriculture with a socially responsible company, we still have orange lots and a few hydroponic strawberry greenhouses available. Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information on the pricing/availability or to make a reservation.
Here’s the TV news report by Paraguay’s Canal Trece which featured the event. Please note that it’s in Spanish and not subtitled:
Thank you again for your interest in our agriculture opportunities.
Stay safe and well.
