Sustainable Bolivia

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 12:49 AM

Description

Sustainable Bolivia is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit public benefit institution with offices in the United States and Cochabamba, Bolivia. Sustainable Bolivia was founded in 2007 and works with over 30 community aid partners in and around the city of Cochabamba. Most positions advertised on idealist are positions within our volunteering and internship program. For more information on the program, please visit our website.

Our Mission:

Sustainable Bolivia aims to promote economic and environmental sustainability while providing global educational opportunities and work experience.

Opportunities:

Volunteer and Internship Placements:

By working closely with local people, volunteers and interns have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of Bolivians in Cochabamba and its surrounding areas. Placements match individual skills and interests to local needs in order to provide the most rewarding experience. Volunteers and interns can contribute in a range of areas such as education, health, the environment, microfinance, women's empowerment, and much more.

Language School:

Sustainable Bolivia offers Spanish and Quechua language classes for individuals interested in growing their language abilities. The school is offered independent of our volunteer and intern program, however many individuals in the program choose to also enroll in classes to supplement their work. All profits from our Spanish lessons are reinvested to help support the work of our organization.

Community Involvement and Impact:

The Mini-Grant Program:

In February of 2009, Sustainable Bolivia's staff met to develop a new system to aid our partner organizations while giving increased transparency and volunteer/intern involvement. Sustainable Bolivia's volunteers have the benefit of being in the unique position of working at the recipient location with first-hand knowledge of their host organization's most desperate needs. As such, the Mini-Grant program was born.

All volunteers will be provided with a mini-grant application form and have access to a minimum of $75 a month. We also encourage fundraising to maximize the assistance we can provide to our partners. Sustainable Bolivia keeps a detailed list of all mini-grants awarded since the program's inception on our website.

Scholarship Program

Sustainable Bolivia runs a scholarship program for qualified Bolivian students who would otherwise be unable to attend university. Working with our partner organizations, Sustainable Bolivia selects students based on their personal needs as well as their academic achievement and potential.

Connect with Sustainable Bolivia

We'd love to hear from you! Apart from the above listed email addresses, Sustainable Bolivia keeps an active presence on Facebook, Twitter and runs a blog. Individuals interested in working with Sustainable Bolivia are highly encouraged to interact with us via social media. We don't bite, we promise!
