Bolivia Digna is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Its objective is to promote and defend the rights of children, adolescents and other vulnerable social groups living in exclusion of the society.
Since 2006, we have been developing programs aimed at social development in the heart of these impoverished neighbourhoods, in order to protect and defend the children coming from these communities, who are often victims of violence of any kind. Through our actions, we promote human rights education, responsible leadership and Christian values.
Over time, we have implemented several projects that focus on the culture of voluntarism. To this end, more than 250 Bolivians and close to 240 international volunteers have been part of our program for periods of between one month and over a year. Since the beginning of 2017, Bolivia Digna has been supporting the projects of its partner the “La Salle” school in several cities in Bolivia.
We are a very lean organization with a core team of professional educators augmented by a larger team of local and international volunteers. However, in order to run the projects and extend our action, we always need financial support, in addition to the volunteers. We are also always looking for partners who can help us financially, give us materials or set up a specific project with the children in our communities.
Thus, the continuity and stability of the association is ensured through the daily efforts of the Bolivia Digna team :
