Day Care Center

Day Care Center is one of the poorest neighborhood of La Paz. All social indicators such as nutrition, school desertion, income per capita and others, are worst than the average in La Paz and Bolivia.

Most of the families have from 6 to 9 children, this may be one of the reason that make fathers abandon them because they do not get enough income to maintain them. Consequently, in many cases the mother is the only family supporter, working very hard all day to barely get enough food for all of them. Frequently, children and youngster of Gran Bretaña do not go to school and many of them leave their homes due to high poverty, lack of affection and frustration; and prefer to live in the streets of La Paz.

Fundacion Arcoiris started Project “Betaña” in 1996, assisting more than 200 youngsters each year (from 6 to 14 years old) through Pedagogical Support Classrooms, school supplies, dinning rooms, sports and medical assistance. There are 10 fulltime teachers.

The children that go to public school in the morning go to the Center after classes, have lunch, spend the afternoon at the Center and go to their homes in the evening. Other group go to the Center in the morning and after having lunch they go to school in the afternoon.

The Center also has a nursery where about 50 younger children get food, medical attention and learning assistance.
