Challenge

Thousands of children and families each year in Bolivia are affected by the challenges of poverty, including disease, domestic instability, income fluctuations, natural disasters and crop ruination, migration and more. These stressors often leave mothers without the means to care for their children and in complete desperation for their livelihood. Many Bolivian and international organizations have been trying to support those children through the construction and operation of orphanages.

Solution

Refugio Rafael provides single mothers vital shelter, a place to grow food, job training, and health care as well as sustaining educational support for children. The refuge's 2 core programs help mothers establish stable income, regain their health and strength, provide moral support for one another and the skills to establish a safe and nurturing home for their children. The program has become a model of positive social change in a place bursting with migration from the countryside.

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.
