GlobalGiving's Visit to Bolivian Dental Project

This week Clarissa Driban from the GlobalGiving Washington, D.C. office will be visiting the Smiles Forever's "Send a Homeless Woman to School for a Year" project based in Cochabamba, Bolivia.  Program Director Alejandro Beckrich plans to show Clarissa around both the dental hygiene clinic and the comfortable and safe housing provided for the students.

It is planned that Clarissa will not only be meeting with all the students, but will also have a chance to visit with many of the indigenous clients who are so grateful to be receiving dental care.  Clarissa will be invited to share dinner with the students and staff, and naturally she will be welcome back anytime.

Expect to receive a "Postcard" from Bolivia.

    Sandy I think it is truly a wonderful thing that GlobalGiving actually cares enough to send a person to the ends of the earth, or the highland Andean plains to help support a worthy project.
