Bethesda is transforming the community of El Alto by expanding their successful children’s program. The children’s program serves approximately 70 children every day before and after school by providing meals, education, medical care and psychological support for at-risk children in their community.

To do so, the leaders of Bethesda created a job training and microloan program which provides the parents of the at-risk children with skills to earn income to support their families. Bethesda hopes to one day open a school offering holistic Christian education to the children and families in their community.
