Proyecto Horizonte is supported by many volunteers who are an essential part of our team! The commitment and hard work of our volunteers have played a key role in achieving our positive impact.
Volunteering with us offers an opportunity to make a difference in a local community while discovering the unique Bolivian culture, making new friends and having a rewarding experience you will remember for the rest of your life. As you gain valuable learning experience, your work helps us in meeting our objective of providing solutions to the most urgent needs and problems in the community of Ushpa-Ushpa via our programs that have a positive impact.
We offer a number of services to the community, therefore there is a wide range of activities in which you can participate, on-site in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and off-site, from your home town.
“All in all, I have done lot of different things at Proyecto and it has been fun. There were also many other volunteers which made the whole experience much easier. We had a great time planning and holding activities for children and youth. We also spent a lot of time together outside work which made my experience even better!”
“I worked as a volunteer at Proyecto Horizonte for a month, and it was probably one of the best months of my life so far. My main task was helping looking after the youngest children in La sala maternal. I really enjoyed being with the children and I had the nicest colleagues who were amazing around the kids”.
“Every day I have to travel through Cochabamba to get to my volunteer work with Proyecto Horizonte. Doing this, I get to see a lot of things and wake up with the rest of the city. I get to hear the latin rhythms from the car speakers, see all the flowers and trees and notice the inequality and diversity of this wonderful city. It makes me think how incredibly lucky I am to have the opportunity to work and live here. And how much I love my life here in my new city”.
“Although my first two weeks in Bolivia were an adjustment, the people at Proyecto supported me every step of the way. Because of this organization, I have been able to learn about and appreciate the culture of Bolivia. If anybody is looking for a place to volunteer in South America, look no further than Proyecto Horizonte.”
