A group of miners in Potosí/Bolivia needs our support to create a small touristic project - a small museum about miner's life in former times.

On the foot of the former "Silver mountain" in Potosí/Bolivia we met a group of miners with a vision: to explain foreign visitors the history of mining from miner's point of view. In a old silver mine they wants to create a small museum, and this should be part of guided tours in Potosí. At least, they hope to benefit as hard working miners on the tourism in the town and to make better the life of the miner's families. With this small project, we try to support the first steps: cleaning and preparation of the old silver mine to give an access without danger and wet feets.
