Amanecer

Amanecer

Purpose

Daybreak ... offering shelter from the night and the promise of a new day to children, youth and women living in the streets of Cochabamba, Bolivia. We seek to awaken and nurture their human dignity and value while encouraging them to develop wholly. We seek a means to accompany them in discovering themselves as children of God, as human persons and members of society. This requires walking together a shared path toward the Christian ideal - a society marked with compassion in which there is Justice, Peace and Love.

Nature of Work

Our program is a process of protection, education, prevention and rehabilitation, accepting those who come to us as they are, and knowing that we can learn much from them.
