In Bolivia, thousands of children have dropped out of school and are living on the streets. The Kaya Center helps these children restore their relationships with their families and get back in school, providing special education and therapeutic services catered to their unique needs. Children receive care and support during the day when their families are unable to provide supervision. They recover lost years of schooling, heal from the traumas of the streets, and develop healthy living skills.


Children get a comprehensive education, receive special education services and counseling, and participate in a variety of extracurricular activities that help them develop important life skills.

Long-Term Impact

The project will serve 60 children, rescuing them from a life on the streets and providing them with the education and support necessary for a healthy, sustainable future.
