Fundacion Bolivia Digna
A team for SUSTAINABLE BOLIVIA
Fundacion Bolivia Digna provides integrated education centres in poor communities in Bolivia. Support their education, health and safety.
Who are we?
Bolivia Digna aims to operate a sustainable foundation that provides local communities with integrated education, health and social support to allow the children the opportunity to realise their own potential, transform their lives and help break the poverty cycle.
What do we do?
Since 2006, Bolivia Digna has provided a safe environment where kids can be kids; we teach and demonstrate values that are at the core of a healthy society through a varied and fun program, we assist with their formal education and remove some of their burdens. Thanks to local professionals and an extended team of local and international volunteers, we assist with the children´s formal education and provide positive role models in their lives.
Who do we work with?
We work in communities on the outskirts of the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia. These tend to be new immigrants, establishing “favela” style homes on the city fringe in areas without basic facilities such as water, sewers and electricity. Typically people in these communities are from poor backgrounds, are illiterate and work long hours for low wages.
Their children are also stuck in the cycle of poverty, suffering from neglect, a lack of positive role models and no family support for their education. Many are required to work or act as guardians for their younger siblings whilst their parents work long hours - this can be 5 year olds looking after 3 year olds. These children are at high risk of becoming victims of physical, psychological and sexual abuse, human trafficking and often lack support to escape the poverty trap.
Why do we need your support?
As a locally run charity, our funding is limited. With very low overhead costs, and sometimes up to 95 children per day to educate, stimulate, and feed, all donations will go directly to supporting the children we work with. This can include buying healthy food, providing essential educational materials and funding a teacher.
We really hope you can help support this valuable and vital work. Every $1 really does count and your support will make a huge difference in helping these fantastic children. It is fast, simple and safe to donate through Razoo.
