Bolivia

Donate to Bolivia – one of the poorest countries in Latin America and that has one of the highest income inequalities in the world. Almost half of all Bolivian citizens live below the poverty line. 

Only a holistic, community-based approach can upend years of generational poverty. Bright Hope aligns our allies with local, in-country church partners to care for basic as well as spiritual needs in impoverished communities. Through a variety of programs that focus on medical care, care for vulnerable children, education, microenterprise, church resourcing and leadership development, communities in Bolivia are moving out of poverty and towards self-sustainability.
