About

Each trip to Bolivia will be with a group of mission-minded volunteers - typically 8-20 total - who want to experience the world, meet new people, and make a difference. No skills required. Trips last 1-2 weeks and include sightseeing in this beautiful, mountainous nation. Our teams will work primarily with indigenous families who have been lured to the city of La Paz with hope for a better life, but find themselves living on the urban periphery in the city of El Alto. The families will typically be ones that consist of three kids and two parents as well as a number of single parent households. Many of the families earn their income through growing fruits and vegetables which they sell in the markets called ferias. Others work as laborers in the various industries located in La Paz and El Alto.
