Activities

We are excited to be returning to work in Bolivia, probably the poorest country in South America.  It will be in Cochabamba, a bustling, colourful city nestling in a beautiful valley at an altitude of 8,500 feet surrounded by the Andes towering at 14,000 feet plus.

There will be the opportunity to see the sights of Cochabamba and maybe get up amongst the majestic Andes.

Project Partner

We will be supporting the work founded by our friends Gwen (a former Soapbox team member) and Marcos Quinteros in Cochabamba.  

 

Their ministry is in a very poor and needy community, Sumumpaya, on the outskirts of the city and they are needing help in a variety of ways to make a difference among the local people and children.  Activities may include helping in the PEPE school, joining in with the sports activities, practical work and much more.

Sleeping & Eating

To help make this a special experience volunteers will be given an in-country orientation and then will be hosted by a local family where they will stay for the duration of their trip.
