This May I will be travelling with 21 other SUNY Oneonta students to Bolivia to team up with Save the Children. Save the Children Bolivia focuses on reducing hunger and chronic malnutrition as well asproviding educational programs for these children. Two-thirds of the country lives in poverty and Save theChildren is currently aiding 15,000 children. Our group will be visiting both Cochabamba and La Pazwhile in the country and putting on programs such as teaching English, soccer skills, or basic health needs. I have visited Costa Rica twice and that is what started my love for the Spanish culture. I volunteered with Red Cross to give shoes to the homeless, helped take care of children in orphanages,and aided young mothers with watching their toddlers. These trips opened my eyes up to the Spanish cultures as well as a desire to help those in need. Our class has a goal of raising $10,000 to give directly to Bolivia's branch of Save the Children. This money will assist them in continuing their already existing programs as well as jump-starting others suchas a juvenile rehab program.
