Bolivia Digna provides an after-school program in two locations in the poorer areas of Cochabamba. Many parents have to work long hours and are often located in a different city. This means the children are left alone and many of the children are responsible for their younger siblings.
We offer a safe and caring environment for the children where they can have fun, play sports, be creative and get support with their school work. We have an English school, sports school, homework help, creative projects and a preschool area for the smaller children which allows their older brothers and sisters to get involved in our other activities.
At Bolivia Digna we encourage our volunteers to implement their own projects with the children. In the past volunteers have taught the children music and dance, organised a theatre event and run a mini Olympics.
Volunteers can choose to live in our volunteer house or with a local host family.
