Parafina Social Project - Educational access to children in social exclusion.

We believe in
the power of giving

Therefore, we donate a 5% of our income to our social project: #ParafinaSocialProject. This project gives access to school to primary school kids from a small neighborhood of Asunción, Paraguay.

Why Paraguay?

Parafina Social Project is based in Paraguay. This is mainly because of 3 reasons:

poverty

Paraguay, one of the poorest countries in Latin America. Poverty reaches 35,1% of the population. This situation makes difficult for paraguayans to pay for a propper education, and most of the times kids end up in the streets, in contact with drugs and violence, instead of being at school learning.

floods

The school where #ParafinaSocialProject helps is located in the Fatima slum. A small town in the outskirts of Asunción, just by the Paraguay River. When rain is abundant, the river floods and covers the whole town, making people loose their houses, and everything thats inside them.

waste

When there is a flood, the access through the streets is impossible. This means that the waste is not collected, and ends up floating through the streets, getting into the neighbours houses, and polluting their drinking water. It also arrives in the river traveling through it and finally getting to the ocean.

Our Social Packaging

Our packaging is much more than just a box to store your glasses, it’s actually a union between our customers and our students.
Every time a kid is sponsored, she/he will receive a pencil case, which is just the same as the packaging our customers receive when they purchase PARAFINA glasses.

A recycled plastic pencil case

Exactly the same one our kids in Paraguay are handed to carry their school materials.

An Eco-pencil

You will be receiving it with your purchase, just like our sponsored students do. It can be planted once used, so it can help us reduce the CO2 from our atmosphere.

Some of our students

They wanted to say hi!, so here they are 🙂

It's been 5 years since we started Parafina Social Project

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

Thank you!
