Warm greetings to you. I just came back from my country of origin where I have witnessed the lack of school furniture in several rural schools on the Bolivian high plateau.
Frontiers Foundation is now seeking donations to allow the villagers on Bolivia’s high plateau (Altiplano) to purchase lumber and manufacture hexagonal tables and smaller chairs (as shown above) for children attending the rural schools.
The cost of one hexagonal table and 6 chairs is US$100 and will greatly enhance the education of these children.
Please also forward this appeal to your friends who might be inclined to give their helping hand to Bolivia. There is a strong potential that monies raised through this campaign will be matched 3 to 1 by the Canadian International Development Agency.
Frontiers Foundation is a non-profit Aboriginal voluntary service organization that promotes well-being of economically and socially disadvantaged communities both in Canada and Overseas. In Bolivia, South America, the economic inequality has grown to levels not seen in the past. Our lead native partner is Voluntarios en Acción (VEA) led by Genara Conde Tumiri. VEA members in partnership with local Aymara communities would build the much needed school furniture.
Your generous donation designated for Bolivia will be faithfully applied, as it will be gratefully received. To donate make a cheque out to Frontiers Foundation and send to the address below or call the office on (416) 690 – 3930. We will provide a charitable tax receipt for all donations.
