Reviews

Volunteer Review
"When I first arrived in Cochabamba, Bolivia, I mentioned to a few people that I was a volunteer for this organization. Even before starting work with this incredible organization I could tell from peoples reactions how highly esteemed and dedicated this organization is to the community. Upon my arrival at the organization I was warmly greeted and made to feel at home among the staff. While there are several departments with their own projects, it is overwhelmingly clear that everyone is dedicated to the wellbeing of the people of this city. They may have started to address the HIV/AIDS crisis in Bolivia, but they have become so much more than that. I had the opportunity to observe and participate in workshops in local schools to prevent sexual violence and educate students on Drugs and HIV. At the same time I was able to develop my own project for the benefit of the community. I received an incredible amount of support and help from the staff and directors. Their dedication to their community inspired me to continue working in these areas. They are a leading force for the rights of people of diverse identities and fighting against discrimination."- Madeline Williams
