Our visit to the Montero School came to an end by late morning, around 11 a.m., when our sponsored children slowly started to trickle out of the school’s compound, heading home to enjoy the rest of their Saturday with their families.

Long-Term Housing Solutions in Bolivia

Upon returning to Bolivia after 7 years, our Director of Development reflects on our support

One of my very first site visits with Children Incorporated is something I will never forget.
