Volunteering in Bolivia
Sadly, Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in South America as a startling number of Bolivian people live below the poverty line. Therefore the help of volunteers is of the utmost importance to Bolivian communities. If you have Spanish speaking skills and love sports, you’ll want to get involved with our Sports Coaching project in the Andes. Or perhaps, join our veterinary internship to work with Bolivian wildlife. Regardless of your skillset, there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved in one of our various Bolivian projects. This is a destination the whole family can enjoy!
All projects are situated in the capital of La Paz, where bustling markets and a flourishing street food scene are ideal ways to gain an insight into Bolivian culture. Explore the cathedrals, museums and galleries by foot, or admire them from above on the 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. For volunteers wishing to see the extremities of Bolivia’s landscape, venture out of La Paz to the other-worldly Sala de Uyuni Salt flats, which consist of a bewildering 11,000 km expanse of salt and rock, creating one of the most jaw-dropping panoramas on earth.
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.
