It is a hotel opened by the Unidos Por la Inclusion Social Foundation (UPIS). The hostel is located in Carlos Paz and has special services . It is an establishment exclusively led by people with Down Syndrome and with different abilities. It is known as Albergo Etico , and in this space training workshops are held in trades and different tasks. It is a way to promote work , help independence and make visible the reality of people who live with different syndromes . In addition to being a room for many tourists, it is a way of inclusion to the world of work and to an independent life.
A restaurant is also available on site. Therefore, workers receive tools and courses for the areas of gastronomy, hospitality and tourism . The project provides internships to many people with different abilities. Today 12 young people with different syndromes are part of the work team. This hostel is staffed 100% by people who want to learn. The goal is to achieve autonomy and economic independence for the staff.
The young people who are now part of Albergo Etico were fellows from the Promote program , of the Ministry of Labour. With these scholarships they were able to train through a work experience at the El Cid hotel. There they received trainings and workshops, as well as the opportunity to carry out tasks of the establishment. With this previous training, the boys faced the new project of the hotel and were able to refurbish and condition it. Today, the facilities are great! Contributions from passengers and tourists are voluntary . With different donations, and shared works , Albergo Etico was consolidating and acquired the heat of a home.
Albergo Etico is created by the initiative of the UPIS, but also with the support and commitment of the Hotel and Gastronomic Association of Villa Carlos Paz . The initiative has immigrant roots: it comes from Italy . The idea of creating the hostel served by people with Down Syndrome arises in the city of Asti, in the Piedmont region. There was the first hotel serviced and managed by people with Down Syndrome . From there, the idea is exported and comes to our beloved Carlos Paz. Nice trip, isn't it? Fortunately, the reception of this project was positive. And that is why today we have a unique hostel throughout South America.
