Despite the recent strengthening of child protection laws, children in Bolivia continue to face abuse and exploitation. Domestic violence and school bullying are widespread in the country. Women and girls are especially at risk of violence and sexual assault.
We empower children in Bolivia to speak up for their rights through children’s clubs and advocacy programs. Teachers, parents and local leaders work with us to encourage a culture of peace and respect. Poverty is a major factor underlying the abuse of children and our entrepreneurial programs help the most vulnerable youths and their families create paths to improve their lives.
