Social Help / Foundation Friends
Many travelers experience a feeling of helplessness when they are confronted with so much pain and suffering in developing countries: they feel very uncomfortable in their role as (rich) spectator.
With our friends “Amigos de Potosi”, we offer you the chance of making a difference.
Amigos de Potosi is a foundation started in 2002 with a group of Dutch tourists and their guide (Margret Kamphuis) that visited the former silver mines of Potosí in Bolivia. The collected monies of the foundation go straight to the miners and benefit their children to prevent child labour, through investing in education, school and training, so these youngsters have a better chance of finding a job outside of the mines
You can support the project financially by donating money to the
