Support the future of 2500 youngsters in Bolivia

Compared to surrounding countries, Bolivia has a very young population: 32% is younger than 15 years old and the average age of the population is 24 years. There is very little encouragement from government to obtain vocational and technical training (only financed at 10%). VIA Don Bosco is putting all its efforts into this education segment and supports studies in auto mechanics and industrial mechanics, electrical and industrial electronics, cutting and sewing, hospitality and baking, secretarial skills, woodwork, beauty therapy and hairdressing, ICT, agriculture, graphic design, bookkeeping, etc.
