An Unfilled Need
Bolivia has made enormous strides over the past twenty years in expanding and improving access to education. Literacy and school completion rates have improved greatly and high school students even have access to wifi in high school. After high school, however, the barriers to continuing one’s education increase significantly. While university itself is nearly free, the cost of living in the urban areas providing these educational opportunities is often too high for rural families to afford. Therefore, each year rural high schools graduate talented young scholars who are unable to pursue their studies due to financial limitations. With the support and assistance of local counterparts, the Chaco Fund provides the funds for young women from Santa Rosa de Agua Blanca High School to pursue higher education. Without these funds, it would be nearly impossible for scholars to pursue a higher education.
