Unidad Educativa 'Obispo Anaya' is part of a wide network known as 'Fe y Alegría' , which aims to better the living conditions and education of rural children. The Centre was founded 30 years ago and has already educated generations of poor peasants living outside Cochabamba.
We work with school aged children living in rural areas with low school attendance who come from low income families.
The Centre offers basic education and organises constant information campaigns for the parents and for young girls about several topics such as: civil rights, health, prevention, childcare, etc. Furthermore, they give pedagogical support to children attending the school and run handicraft and drawing workshops.
The volunteer's tasks include:
Developing activities with the children and educators
helping in the preparation of local celebrations
taking part in workshops of painting, theatre and folkloric dance
helping children with their homework
