Mosoj Yan, which in the Quechua language means “new road” is a Christian nonprofit organization based in Cochabamba and since 1991 has worked with high risk youth, specifically focusing on rehabilitating adolescent girls who have been victims of sexual abuse.

Bolivia has some of the highest global rates of femicide and abuse towards women with the vast majority of victims being young adolescent girls. Through their “Restoration Home” Mosoj Yan houses girls of all ages who have been victims of sexual abuse, where they receive mental and public health services as well as educational support services and vocational trainings. Mosoj Yan seeks to provide these young girls not only with rehabilitation care but also with the necessary tools to become economically independent.
