Volunteering projects in Bolivia

Bolivia is a typical Latin American country as it is full of colours and festivities where different cultures are mixed. Because of this Bolivia is a dynamic and lively country. Despite the high poverty rate, the country is rich in natural resources such as the famous Potosi silver mines. The Bolivian population is multiethnic with Amerindians, European, Asian, African and people of mixed-races. Because of these different cultures, Bolivia enjoys a wonderful diversity of traditions. Art, cooking, literature and music are rich and interesting fields to discover. Bolivia is growing at the rate of most Latin American nations today, balancing an ancient culture with the pressures of the worldwide market.

Environment and biodiversity

Going on a humanitarian mission in Bolivia will allow you to discover this country’s rich and precious environment. The climate varies according to the geographic areas and their altitudes. With Altiplano (temperate valleys of the centre), Amazonia and its East plains… The Bolivian landscape is a large part of its charm. Its biodiversity is incredible since it has an abundance of exotic plants and animals

Daily life, discovery of the country

On our Bolivian missions, you will learn how to adapt and immerse yourself into the daily lives of the local people and respect their traditions and culture. Bolivian standard time is 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Spanish is the main language spoken in Bolivia, and English is not really used. The food is not particularly varied, though is generous and hearty. Bolivia is rich in terms of music as well, they have many different styles that are often played at festivals and other events.
While on a humanitarian mission in Bolivia, you will be able to enjoy some free time to visit the country. You will have two days off per week that will allow you to travel.

Total immersion in local culture

Participating in a humanitarian mission in Bolivia involves far more than simply taking part in an international development project. It involves immersing yourself in a country with a different culture than your own.
Live a humanitarian mission in total immersion’ is the motto of LifeTime Projects. Housed with Bolivian families, you will discover their daily lives. Bolivia has a lot to offer in terms of food, music and tradition.
