Scope of the projects
Countries: Argentina, Bolivia and Switzerland.
The “Access to Energy” Project terminated in December 2016 can be considered a success as its main objective has been exceeded. The purpose was to generate and disseminate knowledge on 3rd generation photovoltaic solar systems – SPV3G in government authorities to provide universal access to basic electrical energy in rural populations.
SPV3G are economical systems (up to 70% less than a conventional system) that provide a comprehensive and efficient solution as regards energy.
As a direct result of the project, Government Agencies for energy access in rural populations from Bolivia (IDTR) and Argentina (PERMER) are working on a large-scale programs to introduce this solution into their operations. This solution is being at issue by the Governments of Peru and Paraguay.

The CONIN methodology, implemented by the Nutrition Program of Haciendo Camino, was adopted as a public policy.
The Centre for Prevention of Child Malnutrition and Human Promotion of Fundación Haciendo Camino in Monte Quemado, supported by Alimentaris Foundation in a 5 year development project, is a member of the CONIN Family. As such, the Centre implements its working methodology for the prevention of child malnutrition, methodology that was recognized in 2016 by the National Government and adopted as public policy. “We work jointly with CONIN Foundation in the signing of this agreement, as we want the methodology they use and the job they do become a State policy,” stated Carolina Stanley, Minister of Social Development.
