Short term volunteers are a crucial part of our program allowing us to fulfill the needs of a variety of children’s centers scattered around the periphery of Cochabamba. These centers provide services for: children whose mothers who work as maids; children of incarcerated parents; and children of low incomes families who need additional help with their schoolwork. These children are Bolivia’s “latchkey” kids. Their parents work long hours in the informal economy. Our volunteers work alongside Bolivian educators helping children with their homework; designing arts and crafts projects for all ages; or providing a pair of desperately needed extra hands.
