In Bolivia, many women are victims of different kinds of violence. Women’s centers create safe space for women of all ages and allow them to learn more about their rights and those of their children.

Women go to these centers to escape the circle of violence, receive psychological support and develop their full potential through various activities. This project is ideal for volunteers who wish to work in these women’s centers with the support of Bolivian professionals. Potential activities include: providing therapies for victims of aggression and / or aggressors, training or support for income generating endeavors. The participation of volunteers is crucial to supporting the implementation of programs to reduce poverty and increase the confidence and empowerment of women.
