Many travelers experience a feeling of powerlessness when faced with so much pain and suffering in developing countries, but some want to go beyond the role as spectators only.

With our friends “Amigos de Potosi”, we offer you the opportunity to make a difference.

Friends of Potosí is a foundation that began in 2002 with a group of Dutch tourists and their guide (Margret Kamphuis) who visited the old silver mines of Potosí in Bolivia. The funds raised from the foundation go directly to the miners and benefit their children to prevent child labor, investing in education, school and training, so that these young people have a better chance of finding a job outside the mines.


You can financially support the project by donating money to the
