Challenge

This boarding school is located in the north of the department of Potosi. Beeing one of the poorest department of Bolivia. The boarding school was built decades ago and was never repair ! The students haven't access to water nor toilet. They cannot sit in their classroom because there is almost no chair, same in the refectory. More than half of the windows are broken and let passing through a cold altiplanic wind (4000 meters) In those conditions, a lot of student got ill, are just don't go

Solution

Repairing the whole school and the refectory, we are sure to give the desire to the student to learn ! Because if the basic needs are fulfilled the students won't have to struggle any more with the cold, the lack of space, the lack of food And also we want to give them dignity

Long-Term Impact

We hope that repairing this school other boarding school in the area will see that this is important for the better life of their student and will do the same by repairing their school ! Also we hope that in the future the government will take it over us and be able to take car about their own people.
