Description

Sustainable Bolivia works closely within the community of Cochabamba, Bolivia to connect volunteers with locally run initiatives addressing a huge range of social issues. The organization acts as a middle man to these smaller projects at a very low fee and helps facilitate placing volunteers in good-fit positions for their skills.

The organization’s primary objective is to provide Bolivian organizations much needed human and financial resources while providing international students and professionals the opportunity to gain practical work experience through internships and volunteer opportunities in Bolivia.

By working closely with local people, volunteers/ interns will make a positive difference in the lives of Bolivians in Cochabamba and its surrounding areas. Opportunities include contributing to the development and implementation of one of Sustainable Bolivia’s projects, or placement within one of our partner non-profits. All placements match individual skills and interests to local needs. Volunteers/ interns can contribute in a range of areas such as child and adult education, orphan care, environmental conservation, health care, agriculture, and much more.
