Service-Learning Opportunities

Connect2Bolivia has established relationships with local centers and communities in the Cochabamba area for Service-Learning. Our goal is to design our Service-Learning projects with the center or community to meet needs identified by the community. We respect the core principals of Service-Learning!

Placement Example: Centro Educativo y Recreativo Fundacion Casari was founded by Massimo Casari. He is a native to Malian, Italy. He came to Bolivia as a volunteer in the 1980s. He decided that the children in Cochabamba, Bolivia needed more help. So, he opened his own center which allows children of all ages to come and receive extra educational help. Many Bolivian children are forced to work for their parents at a young age, selling food on the streets, cleaning houses, etc. Often they are neglected and do not receive a well-balanced education or nutrition. The center enables children to go to school, and then to receive extra help such as tutoring after school hours. This allows students to receive better grades and more opportunities for the future. The center also gives students breakfast, lunch, and dinner to make sure they are being well-nurtured. For more information please visit: www.comitatocasari.org
