Puente Austral is a non-profit organisation which is managed and run by volunteers to raise funds to support rural Argentine schools. They fund projects such as establishing vegetable gardenS, and bakeries for schools, and also sponsor those schools by sending textbooks, school material (pens, pencils, and notebooks), heaters, fans and other items that are in need. They sponsored three schools and funded seven projects since July 2005.
All profits from this event will go to build schools in a remote areas of Argentina.
