Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’re making great progress toward the well-being of children and their families. These are a few of the areas we focused on in the past year: 2021

Healthy Children and Families

  • 10 adults and children went to our training on how to reduce the risks of a disaster and prepare for and cope with disasters if they occur, helping to keep children and families safe.
  • 80 parents learned positive parenting skills, including how to discipline children without physical or emotional punishment, helping to protect girls and boys from abuse.

Education for Better Lives

Children have opportunities to learn and to develop their talents, young people are equipped for the future, and families and communities support children's education.

The needs in Entre Rios, Bolivia

In Entre Rios, a flat region rich with lush vegetation, temperatures are warm in October and cold in June. Families here typically live in homes made of mud and brick, with thatched roofs and dirt floors. A common diet consists of corn flour and cassava made into a thick porridge and eaten with beans and vegetables. With your help, we’ll continue to support children and families here, empowering them to give their children a better future, especially the most vulnerable.
