The distribution of basic school supplies aims to improve educational conditions in indigenous rural communities in Cochabamba. At the same time, this distribution helps families to keep their children in school and counter the high school absenteeism and dropout rates, whose causes include migration of parents, distance from school, and poverty.
Our project includes providing school supplies to 5,785 young students from 63 primary schools in Tarata, Arbieto, Vacas, and San Benito in Cochabamba, who come from rural families with lacking economic resources.
Each school package delivered contains pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, paper, modeling clay, and rulers.
