Most of us live in a country where public education is truly “free”. Children can enroll for free and arrive on the first day of class with nothing in hand and receive the education that was promised to them.
For the children in Bolivia, who’s family live off $289/month or less, this is not the case. The costs associated with public education include enrollment fees, uniform fees, supplies, and textbooks are astronomical compared to the monthly wage. Families simply cannot afford to send their children to school. They are faced with the choice to put food on the table or buying a textbook.
$70.00 provides the basics needed for a child to start the school year. What seems reasonable to many of us is out of reach for thousands of girls in Bolivia. Help break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy in a family by buying school supplies today. Something as simple as a school uniform and a backpack can change the next generation of a family. Thank you for changing the life of a child
Our goal is to be able to assist 100 girls go to school this year. Education significantly reduces their chances of being forced to the sex trade.
