Working at the Equine Therapy program in Bolivia!   (published in Bolivia)

Receiving first volunteers for a project it's always an adventure, not only for the volunteer, but also for us as we discover together many things that we hadn't imagined.

This is the case of Ria Dam, the first Equine Therapy volunteer in Bolivia. Her story began one year ago when she decided to take a leave from her regular job as psychologist in Netherlands and travel to South America to combine her passion for animals and children in one volunteering experience.

Ria told us on interview soon to be published all the things that she discovered about herself during these months, and that she learnt to rely on herself even more thanks to the relaxed and free way to do things of Bolivians.

In fact, she made many friends among the staff members of her placement, Tunari Equine Therapy Centre, including the children and parents with whom she worked.

Now that she is leaving, Ria encourages others to join the Equine Therapy program since that centre offers that service for free, and there are many parents with special need children in our city that cannot afford any other therapy, but this one.

We hope that after receiving such amazing first volunteer others will follow that lead, and more children will be benefit by this project.

Good luck in Netherlands Ria and thanks for everything!

Summer is here and outdoors projects are perfect to make the most of our wonderful weather.

We leave you here some pics of our Equine Therapy program. What a better way to spend the day than working with horses and children!

That extra mile!   (published in Bolivia)

One of the traits of most our volunteers is the desire of doing something else for the children that they have met during their stay in Bolivia.

Touched by the reality they have seen and heard, fantastic things have been achieved over the years by them.

This is the case of Mailys Marschal and Charlote Marguery, two French volunteers, that decided to paint the dormitories of CATD, a local orphanage for special needs children after meeting these.

They convinced other French volunteers in destination and any other able to hold a brush to help them.

These are the results of those painting afternoons. Well done Maya and Mailys!

Music in Bolivia!   (published in Bolivia)

Music volunteers that come to Bolivia not only have the opportunity of teaching music to children of unprivileged backgrounds, they also have the chance of learning about our rich musical heritage.

Thus, we organize, from time to time, workshops on which our volunteers can learn the basics of traditional musical instruments of ours, from tark'as, zampoñas to charangos.

Enjoy the pics of our latest workshop!
