REPRESENT is a missions sending, non-profit organization focused on providing children's homes in Argentina with assistance and support through sustainability and education.
Both REPRESENT and SENT are expressions that inspire positivity, excitement, and passion.
SENT is an action word that summarizes our purpose as a missions organization: TO GO. It also serves as an encouraging reminder that in everything we do, we give it our all. Whether it's building a new children's dorm, designing the layout for a sustainability project, or simply reading a bedtime story to a child - go for it, and go big.
REPRESENT shows a sense of belonging and supporting a cause that we believe in. It also serves as a reminder for why we love and why we serve. Our goal is to be a shining light to the world and an outstanding example as representatives of Christ.
These are the attributes that define us as a ministry and as an organization.
The "WHO" we REPRESENT.
100% of our efforts are focused towards children, their families, and their communities in Argentina.
We partner with local children's homes to develop sustainability projects, eliminating the reliance on charity. Our goal is to teach people how to fish, not to give them fish.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and genuine is this: to visit and look after the orphans…and to keep oneself uncorrupted by the world..”
JAMES 1:27 | ASV
REPRESENTAR is our initiative to partner with local children's homes in Argentina to provide engineering solutions like new dormitory construction, to necessities such as clothing and food, to development programs through education and sustainability.
Today, largely due to corruption and political instability, Argentina has the 4th highest inflation rate in the world. This, in turn, puts economic pressure on families forcing children into homelessness and abandonment. Due to the national financial crisis, local communities are unable to help their orphans, thus making our efforts in Argentina extremely timely and imperative.
How we represent in Argentina
We want to be defined as a hands-on missions org. We work hard to fulfill the "SENT" part of "REPRESENT". Just as Christ commanded us to GO, we are intentional about the going and the doing, and that is reflected in our work.
We literally put boots on the ground, directly working all year-round with local leadership in children's homes and local communities to improve their lives in any way we can. Below is just a sample of several key projects that we have completed in Argentina over the last several years.
