A few years ago, the nuns of the Loreto district decided to open a homework help centre for children living in the heart of the district. For less than a year, Bolivia Digna has been supporting this initiative by sending volunteers three times a week to help children with their homework after school.
Many children have difficulties at school and do not have the necessary conditions at home to work properly. Some have poor results and others simply do not have the opportunity to go there regularly because they are starting to work. We help them and encourage them to enjoy school. We try to inspire them and encourage them to learn. In many cases, parents are absent almost all day and/or have not received formal education themselves and therefore cannot give children all the attention, support and encouragement they need. In other cases, children simply do not have access to the necessary books and materials.
