Sariry Foundation (Bolivia)

Project - Photo - SariryIn the Tilata neighbourhood, outside of the city of El Alto, Alma supports the Sariry Foundation, a small organization (we are one of only three supporters of Sariry) that cares for the educational and personal development of 500 children who live in the area.

The Sariry Foundation works with at-risk youths in their own classrooms in Tilata and in the area’s schools. Activities include supplemental math and verbal classes, anti-violence campaigns, self-esteem workshops, Aymara cultural preservation, human rights workshops, and reproductive health classes for adolescents.

We pay for two full-time teachers at Sariry and have been supporting them since 2013.
