My name is Carla and I will be traveling to Cobija, Bolivia with my daughter and son, Suzanna and Geoff, to volunteer in a Special Needs/Childcare project through International Arts Volunteer Project starting November 28, 2017-December 9, 2017. Cobija is located about 600 km (373 mi.) north of La Paz in the Amazon Basin on the border with Brazil.
We created this campaign in an effort to raise money for the childcare arts center where we will volunteer as well as to raise awareness for the children suffering from the after effects environmental and economic challenges.
I have always loved helping those around me and now I have the opportunity to fly to my parent’s homeland for the first time, give back to my roots and contribute to a developing community.
Geoff and Suzanna are aspiring art therapist who make a positive influence on whoever they meet and we are looking forward to bringing happiness and spreading the love to these children and local staff members.
We plan to make every effort possible to create a positive impact on the children we will care for. Although our trip will last 2 weeks, we hope to provide supplies, equipment and other essentials that will last much longer. These supplies include, but are not limited to:
• Antibiotics, antiseptics
• Art/school supplies (pens, paper, markers, crayons, paint)
• Board games
• Children’s clothing
• First aid materials
• Outdoor game equipment
Our goal is to raise $1000 for these supplies and to partially cover the program costs. This will be a life-changing experience for us and these children in need. This is why we are asking for your support.
Please do not feel obligated to contribute to our campaign, but if you do, know that we will be forever grateful. If you are unable to donate, then please share this page because a little can go a long way. Any support – monetary or moral – will be greatly appreciated.
We will post as many updates as we can on this page and I will be sure to post our adventure on my Instagram (@boliviaartsproject). So be sure to follow me if you’d like to join us on our journey to Bolivia.
