Bolivia Digna Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Our objective is to promote and defend the rights of children, adolescents and other vulnerable social groups living in exclusion and poverty in some of the poorest communities of Bolivia.

Since 2006, we have been developing programs aimed at social development, the prevention of violence, the protection and defense of children victims of violence, education in Human Rights and responsible leadership. We run several projects that, while assisting the target group, also has the aim of promoting and instilling a culture of volunteering. To this end, more than 250 Bolivians and close to 150 international volunteers have been part of our program for periods of between one month and over a year at a time.

In 2014, Bolivia Digna opened its own two centers in disadvantaged communities of the outskirt of Cochabamba where we work every afternoon from Monday to Friday. Over the years, Bolivia Digna has built strong partnerships with other organisations with the same objectives, in order to support a broader population of children and teenagers in needs in various cities of Bolivia.
