Bolivia

Human trafficking, poverty, and racism are part of life for the Ayoré people in and around Santa Cruz, Bolivia. This program will partner with South American Mission through community outreach and a Bible-based retreat to reach young girls at risk of entering the prostitution trade. The team will also work with poor communities in church-based community development and serve alongside IFES Bolivia to engage a large public university in evangelism and Bible study.
