We do not charge a fee for volunteers.
We do not provide meals or accommodation, but we can assist volunteers in finding reasonably priced accommodation in Sucre and in the rural communities where our libraries are located.
Volunteers needed who are keen on creating content for our social media sites to attract potential Volunteers and Donors. Also needed for editing photos and videos for web and blog posts.
We need good quality picture books for children in Spanish.
Please send in small quantities (1-5 books at a time) to:
Biblioworks relies entirely upon donations and fundraising to keep us running. We ask that volunteers fundraise a donation prior to coming to volunteer. There is no minimum amount as every bit helps!
Not only have we opened and equipped 16 libraries in Morado K’asa, Presto, Patacon, Yamparaéz, Tarabuco, Villa Serrano, Sopachuy, Tomina, Tomoroco, Maragua, Villa Abecia, Pampa Aceituno, Padilla, Barrio Japón, Redención Pampa and Incahuasi, but we are working on making them all self-sustaining. With our team here in Bolivia, we have trained hundreds of librarians, teachers, students, and other community members in the proper use of a public library.
Our organization is dedicated to improving literacy and opening educational doors so that children and young people will have new opportunities to pursue studies and vocations. We believe these opportunities will allow them to serve their communities and develop strategies to eliminate poverty.
In rural Bolivia, the concept of public libraries is relatively new and most children and adolescents do not have access to books and information that are necessary to achieve success.
