Street kids in Bolivia grow up believing they are disposable, invisible, insignificant, and unloved. At La Jornada they experience unconditional love for the first time, and start to see their value.

WHO WE HELP

La Jornada (The Journey) is a shared home in Bolivia for former street kids who have graduated from high school and are committed to continuing their education by taking up a skilled trade, or gaining a professional qualification. Through scholarships, room and board, and mentoring, we work to break the cycle of poverty by intervening at a critical point in their lives.

The transformative power of education spreads outward into the community, breaking the cycle of poverty not just for the young men themselves, but also for their extended families and friends still living on the streets.

WHAT WE DO

Street kids in Bolivia grow up believing they are disposable, invisible, insignificant, and unloved. At La Jornada they experience unconditional love for the first time, and start to see their value. They learn how to be a part of a family, and how to use the gifts and abilities God has given them. The home exists not only to provide higher education, but also to teach them that they can break the cycle of poverty, that there is hope for a good future. God has a purpose for them.
