The Jesus Maestro School is a K-12 school founded by the Lutheran Church in the province of Tiquipaya, Bolivia.  The school is divided into two units, A and B. Unit B was created to care for children with special needs in Tiquipaya, which is a rural, majority indigenous Quechua community where many of the families are low income and do not have the economic means to care for their children with special needs.  The school provides specialized educational and therapy programs for the children at the school, tailored to support a variety of intellectual and physical disabilities including Autism, Down Syndrome, Infantile Cerebral Palsy, Hemiplegia, Myopathies, Hypertonia and Muscular Dystrophies.  Many of the children attending the school were abandoned and are housed in local orphanages, which often do not have the resources to provide them with the proper care they need.  The staff at Jesus Maestro continually go to great lengths and often use their own resources to ensure these children are provided with adequate care at their homes.
