The Mission Education department of the Maryknoll Fathers & Brothers in the U.S. does great work spreading mission throughout the US Church, and organizes trips to Bolivia through our program, particularly for Catholic-school teachers and for deacons and their wives.
Many of the sites in which volunteers serve are small, grassroots groups and projects in parishes and barrios, and don’t have a presence on the web. Here are just a couple of the partner organizations with whom we place volunteers:
Niños Con Valor runs two homes – one for boys, one for girls – and is the first institution of its kind in Bolivia to serve kids living with HIV/AIDS. Some of our volunteers have gone on to serve on Niños’ board, and one returned to Bolivia to do research with them on HIV among Cochabamba’s street kids.
