Where we work

Fundación Adelante Bolivia was founded in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where we continue to
concentrate our efforts and programs. Cochabamba is one of nine governmental
Departments in Bolivia, and is known for its vibrant customs, delicious cuisine, and for
its spectacular geographical diversity including Amazonian jungles, subtropical
mountains, and highland valleys. The Indigenous Quechua communities are an integral
part of Cochabamba, and the Quechua language continues to part of the daily lexicon.
Since 2012 we have partnered with local nonprofit organizations and schools in
Cochabamba and together, we have reached over $5,000 children, students, and
families. Our work would not be the same without their generous support and
collaboration. Below are some of the organizations we currently partner with.

Mosoj Yan

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.

The Foundation for Environmental, Educational, and Multidisciplinary Studies (CECAM)

The Foundation for Educational, Environmental, and Multidisciplinary Studies (CECAM) was founded in Oruro, Bolivia in 1997, with the aim of promoting environmental protection and clean energy, education, and public health among the poor, rural indigenous communities in the regions of Oruro, La Paz and Cochabamba in Bolivia. The organization focuses on improving the dignity and quality of life of these communities through their energy efficient stoves and waterless toilets, recycling programs, and education and public workshops.

Wasitukuypaq-Ushpa Ushpa

Wasitukuypaq is an educational and cultural center located in Township of Ushpa Ushpa, an impoverished and majority indigenous Quechua community in Cochabamba.  Due to a lack of adequate housing, basic services such as water and electricity, and schools in Ushpa Ushpa, the children and adolescents from this community are denied any educational opportunities.  Wasitukuypaq, which means “Community House” in Quechua, is a place where children and adolescents from the community can receive child care and educational support services.  The mission of the center is to improve educational outcomes in Ushpa Ushpa and to shelter children and adolescents from criminal activities and drug and alcohol abuse which is a growing concern in indigenous, low income communities like Ushpa Ushpa.  The center is currently supported and operated by the Sayari Warmy Women's Association, a partner organization to Adelante Bolivia.

Asociación de Mujeres Sayari Warmy

The Sayari Warmy Women's Association is composed of a group of women community leaders and elders, who seek to empower themselves and improve the quality of life in their communities.  The majority of the women are from the Ushpa Ushpa Township, an impoverished and majority Quechua indigenous community located in the outskirts of the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia.  Sayari Warmy means ¨stand up women¨ in the Quechua language. The women regularly organize community events and workshops to promote women´s rights and to call to attention the historic marginalization of women in Bolivia.  The group also produce and sell a variety of handcrafts and goods to raise funds for Wasitukuypaq, an education and cultural center the group supports and operates in Ushpa Ushpa. 

Jesús Maestro School

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.
