Our actions in Bolivia

In Bolivia, we are working to improve the lives of children and young people in various regions. In Sucre, El Alto and other towns, our initiatives aim to prevent violence, improve access to education and strengthen environmental protection. Our actions also extend to supporting young women who are victims of violence and preventing them from dropping out of school. We also work to raise community awareness of the need to protect children and their right to a quality education.

Protecting women and children from domestic violence

Every year, a large number of young women in La Paz who are victims of gender and domestic violence receive support to defend their rights and rebuild their future and that of their children. A radio programme is also broadcast to raise awareness and inform a wide audience about the risks of violence.

Protecting children at risk of exploitation

In Potosi, where many children are forced to help their families by working, measures are being taken to enable these children to continue their education while being protected from the risks of violence and exploitation. Numerous actions are being taken to support the commitment of children and adults to child protection in several municipalities.

Preventing school drop-out

In addition to public education in Cochabamba schools, our partner is preventing children from dropping out of school and running workshops to raise awareness of their rights and sustainable development among 800 children and 250 parents and teachers. The protection of 400 children identified as being at risk of exploitation is improved by specific support actions.

Educating for children’s rights and sustainable development

Terre des Hommes Suisse supports initiatives in Bolivia aimed at complementing education projects on children’s rights and environmental protection. In several Bolivian towns, a large number of children and their teachers receive annual training, enabling some of them to become committed eco-journalists in their schools and communities.
