The Centre of Friendship and Support works with disadvantaged children who have compromised educations, in the city of Cochabamba. We offer support principally in the area of education. The parents of the children we support did not finish school and most never attended at all, greatly reducing their capacity to assist with school homework. It is for this reason that the staff at the Centre are principally school teachers. We have established class rooms with a maximum of 12 students per teacher with the specific aim of giving individualised attention to the children.
Over the years the children have been the cornerstone of the Centre and drive us on to achieve our goals. To have sufficient teachers is vital to help the boys and girls who outside of our centre really have no possibility of progressing in their education.
