La Punilla Boarding School

With the financial support of the German organization Jugend-Bildungs-Hilfe in Bolivia (aid for youth education), German volunteers installed and manage a boarding school for children living up to 10 km from the school. This school goes from nursing school to 7th grade and there is a boarding school which houses 23 girls. There is a gym on the grounds, often and enthusiastically used for soccer. There are also small streams and mountains which are favorite outings for the boarders. The volunteers regularly look after the students and help with their projects in the attached carpentry shop.
