(Bolivia) School Tutoring
This Maryknoll program, directed by Father Francis Higdon, M.M., consists of three schools in the poorest areas of Cochabamba. The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers provide an education to children whose parents are not educated and are too busy working to provide for their families. A new school provides 56 kids with good educations and healthy lunches every day. In total, there are 180 abandoned and “at risk” children that the School Tutoring Program currently ministers to. Parents who are too poor and under-educated to support their children’s education appreciate the Church accompanying them in this responsibility. Currently, we have 17 volunteers from San Simon University that assist us in two of our centers. Your gift provides an education to the youth in Bolivia.
Through the prayers and generosity of our Maryknoll Friends, this project will successfully accomplish its goals!
