WOW, once again the students from the Calvert school did a food drive and donated 30 kilos of food for the five Helping Hands families. We have seen such a positive difference in the health and well-being of these families. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Helping Hands has worked since 2004 to open up educational opportunities for Bolivian children and youth at risk and living in vulnerable situations.  In 2017 we worked with 100 young people, helping them to finish the school year. As 27 of our students finished their studies last year, we are now taking on many new students, and this year we have four families where the grandparents of very limited economic resources are raising their grandchildren, anywhere from 2 children to 7 per family.  Helping Hands is providing the school materials for these children so that they may all continue in school.  We also provide the school uniforms required.  As well we have over 60 students in post secondary studies that have come to us from many different social organizations.  These students are following programs as varied as Law, Accounting, Gastronomy, Medicine, Dentistry, Automobile Mechanics, English, Nursing, Agronomy, and many more. We invite you to meet some of our students on our website http://helpinghands-bolivia.com/our-students/

It might be interesting to note that the new World Bank Report to come out in March 2018 will be dedicated exclusively to education and its importance for the development of poorer countries.   In particular it will talk about the quality of education in underdeveloped nations and also the need for access to education for all young people.  http://www.worldbank.org/en/publication/wdr2018  

We at Helping Hands also believe that one of the most important keys to development is education. 

We thank all of you who support us in this venture to give disadvantaged youth the opportunity of an education.
