BENEFITING: AMISTAD MISSION

HOURS PLEDGED: 10

Jessica Tobin

THE STORY:

Bolivia is the poorest country in South America where 65% of the population earns less than $1 a day and 2.5 million children suffer from malnutrition, disease, abuse and abandonment. For over 25 years, Amistad Mission has been addressing these challenges in Christ's name by finding lasting ways to improve the lives of the poor and vulnerable – one child, one family, one village at a time.

In 1990 Villa Amistad was created, a home and safe haven for abandoned, abused and orphaned Bolivian children located in the city of Cochabamba. Beginning with thirty children divided among three houses run by a caretaker affectionately called “Mamá”, Villa Amistad has grown to include eight houses, or families, and more than seventy children between the ages of 2 and 15. In 2004, male and female youth houses were opened near Villa Amistad in order to support our growing teen population. At that same time a vocational training and University program was added. At Amistad, our children not only come to know the love of a family but also develop integrally through spiritual formation classes, educational teaching, psychological support and medical care. For 19 years, Villa Amistad has been a place where children are provided with the support they need to overcome their past and move into the responsibilities of adulthood and, in many instances, leadership in their country.

As a class project, we have decided to raise money for the children of Amistad Mission. Through small donations we are hoping to raise a couple hundred dollars to buy basic school supplies for the children.

Please help us reach our goal by giving a small donation, anything helps. If you would rather not make a donation online you can give to one of our fundraiser we will be holding on the University of Iowa campus or contact Jessica-tobin@uiowa.edu

We will be holding funraisers around campus-stay tuned!
