Pico Verde can arrange a number of interesting opportunties for our students to offer their skills and experience (and improve their Spanish) by volunteering in La Paz. As active members of the Sagarnaga business and development communities we have developed many contacts among non-profit agencies, children’s centers, and primary care facilities, among others. With this network of partners and friends, we are able to find volunteer positions for our students that match their interests.

We believe that volunteering is an amazing way to improve your Spanish while at the same time helping a deserving organization and doing things that inspire and interest you.

Our Partners

Pico Verde has two key partners who can provide a range of volunteering opportunities both inside and outside La Paz

Logo_-_FinalCentro de Miembros Artificiales is a prosthesis clinic that provides the highest quality prostheses that can be produced in Bolivia to amputees with little or no resources.  By providing them with a prosthesis they can not only walk again, and even run or ride a bicycle, but they are also given a chance to regain the dignity and self-respect.  We are looking for volunteers to help us improve and expand our program.

Visit our web site, www.rotaryboliviaprosthetics.org, to learn more about this clinic -- see photos of the clinic and patients as well as some videos of amazing success stories. You will also find our email address and phone number so you can contact us directly.
