July 2016

In July 2016, a team of five students from Curtin University travelled to Argentina to work for a month with Ingenieria Sin Fronteras (Engineers Without Borders) in La Plata, Buenos Aires Province. The team worked on building a soup kitchen and community centre in one of the poor neighbourhoods on the outskirts of the city, which provides food and academic support for children of the area.
