Project

The social challenges in the Bolivian society complicate free and healthy development for children and young people. The measures implemented by the Fundación Yo Voy A Ti in Cochabamba, Bolivia serve the purpose of promoting children’s development.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 26, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
