Volunteering in Bolivia
If you have spanish speaking skills and love sport, then get involved with our Sports Coaching project in the Andes. Or perhaps if you have wildlife experience join the veterinary internship. Regardless of your skillset, there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved in one of the various projects that currently run in Bolivia and it is a popular destination with our families.
Sadly, Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in South America, and a startling number of Bolivian people live below the poverty line. The help of volunteers is therefore of the utmost importance to Bolivian communities. All of the projects are situated in the capital of La Paz where the old meets the new, and its bustling markets and flourishing street food scene are ideal ways to gain an insight into Bolivian culture. Explore the cathedrals, museums and galleries on foot, or admire them from above on Mi Teleférico, the world’s longest urban cable car network.
Lovers of the outdoors will have no problem finding ways to spend their spare time in Bolivia. Venture out of La Paz on the weekend to the other-worldly Sala de Uyuni Salt flats. The flats provide a bewildering and totally unique experience for volunteers wishing to see for themselves the extremities of Bolivia’s landscape. It’s 11,000 km expanse of salt and rock is the place where the earth meets the sky and provides one of the most jaw-dropping panoramas on earth.
So if you welcome a challenge, love grand landscapes and are keen to throw yourself into a unique culture, then join us in Bolivia where your efforts will have a positive and sustainable impact upon disadvantaged communities.
