About

Real Adventure for Real Change!

Are you looking for...

a genuine and secure NGO to work with?

  • an adventurous experience in Bolivia, to be in touch with real local people and culture?
  • an environment where you can learn and practise Spanish?

BiblioWorks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity which has established twelve libraries in poor communities in and around the beautiful city of Sucre, Bolivia. We believe that healthy communities require healthy minds, and our sustainable libraries act as a vital way for communities to develop through literacy and education.

We need volunteers to work as Women's Literacy Teachers, providing teaching which is engaging, helps women to develop their literacy, as well as offering them the chance to learn a new skill. Previous volunteers have taught literacy through the medium of cooking and photography; if you have skills you are passionate about and feel you could teach, we would love to hear from you!

An advanced level of Spanish is required for this role as you will need to establish successful relationships with the women you are teaching. Previous experience of teaching, as well as a high level of initiative are also essential, as this role is mostly unsupervised. The impact that you can have with this role is immeasurable; you will be personally responsible for changing the lives and opportunities of the women in these communities.

We look forward to welcoming you to our team here in Bolivia!
