As some of you may know, I am spending eight weeks this summer working with The Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) on developing a sustainable project with a partner NGO, Centro Integral Warmi. Centro Integral Warmi is a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide basic social services for the neediest children and families of Cochabamba, Bolivia. Here at Warmi, children ages 1-18 receive educational support, healthy lunches and psychological evaluation in a safe environment, while their parents are able to go off to work, often at low-paying domestic service and physical labor jobs. Since Warmi's start up in 1983, it has rescued over 2000 children from wandering the streets or performing child labor while their parents work, thus helping to reduce incidences of domestic violence and promote the reduction of poverty. Warmi recently opened up a second office in Tiquipaya, a small town 45 minutes outside of the city. Parents pay $70 Bolivianos ($10 USD) monthly at the main site where I work; however, the parents in Tiquipaya are unable to pay a monthly fee. Nevertheless, Warmi has generously provided a free safe place for their children to go. Currently, Warmi is in a financial crisis and is struggling to keep the Tiquipaya site open. They have very little resources and material available for schooling, sanitary uses, and cooking. For my internship project, I am fundraising money to fix Warmi’s oven and buy the necessary materials for them to start making bread (oven mitts, oven racks, bowls…etc). Once I have successfully completed this first step, a cook from the main Warmi site will teach the parents and myself how to bake bread and then the parents will cook and sell it to other Warmi families twice a week. This is an extremely big project to take on considering I have 3 weeks left at Warmi. However, I am confident that I can successfully implement this project. I wrote a 17-page grant and budget proposal to receive enough funding ($672.92) but unfortunately only received $180. Therefore, I am setting up this online fundraising site and have until Monday July 7th to raise enough money for my project. I am asking for $520 to pay for the rest of the materials and the personal 4% charge through GoGetFunding. I am fundraising the money through GoGetFunding, a very common and safe webpage for online fundraising. With your help, the Warmi site in Tiquipaya will not only have the resources to make food, but develop an independent income generating program.
