Construction of study room, kitchen and dining room for peasant students without resources, of the “Nuestra Señora de Begoña” Boarding School

Bolivia

Justification

Since its creation, this Boarding School has welcomed 100 boys and girls who are offered accommodation, adequate food, primary health and education services for 10 months a year. Its facilities have grown over time, but the initial ones have become obsolete and insufficient for the number of people that are currently served. Thus the kitchen and dining room are already insufficient and the study room does not yet exist.

Location

Local Partner
