Mission Statement

Bolivia Digna is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Cochabamba, Bolivia and founded in 2006. Its objective is to promote and defend the rights of infants, children, adolescents, senior citizens and other vulnerable social groups living in exclusion and poverty, in some of the poorest communities in Latin America.

Description

The children we work with suffer from a lack of attention and of positive role models as their families are unable to assist with their formal education. Children and adolescents are often required to work and many are left to fend for themselves or are expected to care for younger siblings. These children are at risk of becoming victims of physical, psychological and sexual abuse and human trafficking. They lack support to escape the poverty trap.

Therefore, the primary goals of all of our projects are:

  • To provide a safe environment for at least a part of the day;
  • To remove some of the burden of responsibility and allow kids to be kids;
  • To teach and demonstrate values that are at the core of a healthy society;
  • To teach children hygiene habits such as washing their hands and brushing their teeth;
  • To assist with and augment formal education to improve future prospects.
