MaD went to Cochabamba to meet some of the children we sponsor through a charity called Chalice. Chalice has one of the best, if not the best, records for ensuring that money donated goes into the hands of those in need via staff on site.
The following is a photographic record of our visit:
MaD commends the wonderful work of Chalice and the staff who so selflessly teach, provide and support children in poverty in Cochabamba!
PLEASE READ MORE ABOUT CHALICE AND THE WORK THEY DO!
MaD [Mona and I] will be travelling to Cochabamba soon with Chalice, a child sponsorship program. Chalice.ca supports 1200 children in their 4 sponsorship sites in Cochabamba. We will be working at those 4 sponsorship sites and raising our awareness of the needs of these children. M a D, 2 of 20 volunteers going to Bolivia, have been asked as a group to raise $20,000 to fund the creation of computer labs that these children can access through the sites. We will be taking 3 or 4 suitcases of items donated by Calgarians that can be used by the children. We are also encouraging family and friends to consider sponsoring a child with Chalice.ca. Last year Chalice received an A grade in MoneySense magazine’s Charity 100 rating (http://www.moneysense.ca/planning/2015-charity-100-grades/).
Some of the gifts collected!
