In 2009 Fundación Alalay implemented the project in the communities of La Paz, El Alto and Santa Cruz in Bolivia. Its purpose is that children at high risk recover their basic rights, strengthen their learning skills, life skills and foster respect for the wellbeing of the children in the caregivers. The project works with children from families in poverty, children who are in the process of housing recuperation and children at high risk of being expelled to the street from homes with high rates of abuse. The project targets children in the homes of Alalay (schools for life) and in public schools (classrooms for Life). In its homes, Alalay develops a comprehensive program providing children with food, monitoring and remedial courses, technical workshops production (bakery, carpentry, textiles, etc.) and workshops on life skills. Alalay’s model includes the use of alternative methodologies and playful in their programs. In public schools, the project implements tele-centers where through an interactive program, children learn about life skills. The project also works with parents of families, developing educational workshops, workshops on life skills, technical production, guidance and counseling. It also trains teachers in educational institutions to strengthen their abilities to good treatment and education of children. Finally, the project promotes the formation of community networks to promote good treatment in local areas.
