Building from East to West in Bolivia

East: New school in June the 4th Community

The educational infrastructure of the community of June the 4th was inaugurated on November 27, 2018. During this project, we built six classrooms with a battery of bathrooms and four homes for teachers.

The opening ceremony was attended by the Community of June the 4th and its leaders, the Municipality of Santa Rosa del Sara represented by its Mayor Ing. Carlos Guzmán, some friends from Europe representing the Mano a Mano Bolivia Friends Organization in Belgium and by Mano a Mano Bolivia’s CEO, Dr. José Velásquez.

The program opened with a musical number that students and teachers from the school had prepared. In the midst of much excitement, these students and teachers made clear their appreciation for the construction of the long-desired infrastructure improvements.

This project was executed thanks to the collaboration of the organizations Sign of Hope of Germany and Friends of Mano a Mano Bolivia of Belgium, the Mayoralty of Santa Rosa del Sara, and the community itself.
