Summary

100 children at extreme high risk of entering street life in La Paz, Bolivia will be given shelter, education, counseling, school support, food and care at a theraputic community program. Kaya has served street children for over 10 years. Kaya is working to prevent the next generation of street children. These children, based on their current situations and family histories, are highly likely to enter street life and or prostitution. Kaya is giving these children hope for a better future.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Bolivia, thousands of children are living on the streets. For children escaping abuse or extreme poverty, the street often appears the only option. For families unable to provide adequate supervision, children are often lured by the freedom of the streets. For families with a history of street life, the cycle is difficult to break. Those children highly likely to enter street life need an option. Kaya provides an option.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Kaya Center is reducing the number of street kids through prevention. Our team restores relationships within families, provides educational support and therapeutic services catered to the child's unique needs. Children also participate in a variety of extracurricular activities that help them develop important life skills. The center offers supervision and a sense of partnership in avoiding what many parents have thought to be unavoidable.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will provide intensive and holistic services to 100 children and their families, allowing them to escape street life. Many of these children have already lost children to the street. Giving them a different opportunity will break the cycle in that family, empower parents, and reduce the number of children in the street.
