Help the Refugio weather Bolivia's political storm

A microproject by Global Gallery, Inc.
Help the Refugio weather Bolivia's political storm

Summary

Bolivia is currently in a very tense moment of political change. Our community is caught in the cross-purposes of the various political groups and is concerned for their safety, access to health care and services, and keeping the children in school and fed. One mother from the Refugio has been hospitalized due to trauma during a protest, and tensions within the community are running very high. We ask for your support to pay for extra transport costs to get to vital services during this time.

Challenge

Evo Morales has recently stepped down as President and an interim President has stepped in, but clashing perspectives mean the streets are deeply unsettled and unsafe, and basic services are difficult to access. The project will help make sure children are accompanied, extra transport options are available, and funds are available to bring in health care support and basic services as needed.

Solution

This is a short term, but vital response to the current violence and tensions in Bolivia.

Long-Term Impact

The program will support 4 women and their families each year to become independent and be able to provide a stable home environment for their children. In addition, 100 children will be able to continue in school as they advance in their studies. All 500 families in the area will benefit from a smoother transition of migrant and vulnerable families to the area, as well as additional skill development and income generation opportunities.
