Parafina Social Project - Educational access to children in social exclusion

We believe in
power of giving

We donate 5% of our sales to our social project #ParafinaSocialProject. This project guarantees access to a stable and quality education for children in a small suburb of Asunción – Paraguay.

Why Paraguay?

We focus our social project on Paraguay for the following reasons:

poverty

Paraguay is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. 35.1% of the population lives below the poverty line. This situation complicates access to quality education for a large part of the population. This means that children end up on the streets in contact with drugs and violence instead of learning at school.

floods

The school where we work with our #ParafinaSocialProject is located in Fátima, a small town on the outskirts of Asunción, very close to the Paraguay River. When the rain gets heavier there are often floods that destroy the houses and what is inside them.

trash

When there is a flood, it becomes impossible to walk on the street; the garbage cannot be collected and the waste ends up floating through the streets and entering the houses, contaminating the water they drink. These residues usually return to the riverbed and end up in the ocean, polluting it.

Our Social Packaging

Our case is much more than a simple box to store your glasses, it is actually the union between our clients and our students.
Each scholarship boy or girl receives a case for their pencils, which is the same case that our clients receive when they buy some PARAFINA glasses.

A recycled plastic case

Identical to the one our children in Paraguay receive to carry their school supplies.

An Eco-pencil

With your purchase, like the scholarship children, you also receive our ecological pencil. Once consumed, you can plant it and a tree will grow. In this way, it helps us reduce the carbon footprint created directly by our products.

Some of our students

They want to tell you something. here you have them 🙂

It's been 7 years since we started with our Parafina Social Project

And with your help, these children will have the opportunity to achieve their dreams and become the best version of themselves.

Thank you!

Our commitment does not end here. Learn about other social actions that we carry out.
