Bolivia Field Renovation

In the beautiful South American country Bolivia  there is a small community in Santa Cruz that would love  your help! The children of Las Pampitas Santa Cruz don’t always have an easy life and we would like to light up their lives this summer by spending time with them, teaching them football and basic English.

We are three great friends from complete different backgrounds that are passionate about Football (Soccer), and love to speak Spanish.  We spent most of our school years together in India and have helped to make a difference by putting a smile on many kid's faces through playing the beautiful game of football.   We have recently completed our junior year and have decided that we would like to travel to Santa Cruz, Bolivia to play football with the kids there.

The one thing that could make a real difference in their lives would be a proper field, where families can get together on a Sunday to relax, play and recharge for the tough week ahead. The children will be able to use the field throughout the week to continue practicing football.

In order to accomplish our goal , we need materials to fix the field, basic equipment and supplies  to play and teach the kids.  We also need some support for our basic room and board in order to be less of a burden to our hosts in the community. All these things are not cheap so please help us to make this a reality... every penny counts.  

We are planning to travel there at the beginning of August, and will be spending 2 weeks with the people in Santa Cruz.

The picture attached shows the current state of the field, showing our starting point from which we would like to start working to make a change.
