Un Nuevo Amanecer Group's story
This group is called Un Nuevo Amanecer, formed within the indigenous people called Toba Qom from the San Francisco-Cerriteño community. It is made up of members Sara and Andrea. The former makes a living mainly at her handicrafts business alongside her mother and Andrea also makes a living at her handicrafts business with her family.
Both want to help support their families. They are also aware of environmental and pollution issues and for this reason want to contribute their small grain of salt towards the universal need to help improve the environment in the face of global pollution.
