The Foundation Bolivia Digna has been working for ten years to support vulnerable children and teenagers. For three years it has concentrated its efforts on two communities of Cochabamba, going there every day to provide extracurricular, informal education to more than a hundred children aged two to fifteen. Not only does it allow children to be children when they have so many responsibilities at home, it also gives them a safe place away from the streets or loneliness at home. Lately, we have been focusing on hygiene and nutrition in our activities.
Malnutrition and its consequences
Malnutrition can have an impact on children's lives, with a slower brain and physical development. Nutrient and vitamin deficiencies can be linked to diseases as well as poor academic performances.
The solution: a healthy snack every day
We want to create opportunities for these children by giving them a healthy snack which isn't included in their daily diet, e.g. cereals, fruit, proteins and milk, every day.

Why fund it?
By donating, you're helping a local NGO to give daily healthy snacks to more than 100 children, which include:
- Drinking water
- Fruit, an egg or quinoa biscuits
- A glass of milk
By doing this, you'll also fight malnutrition and create more opportunities for these children. It has been proven that most children, and especially young ones, suffering of malnutrition will not be able to go to university because of their brain (under)development.
Breakdown of monthly costs:
For a month of snacks we need €92:
- Fruit twice per week: 14€
- Quinoa biscuits twice per week: €31
- A daily glass of milk for the smaller children: 47€
- Eggs: donations
- 8% of fees ( 5% KissKissBankBank and 3% bank fees)
The goal: 2 months of healthy snacks for the children
Our goal is to raise enough money for two months of snacks. If you donate:
- €5: one day of snacks
- €10: two days of snacks
- €25: one week of snacks
The more you give, the longer we'll be able to ensure snacks for the children!
