Project: Candelero Street Kids

The large number of children living on the streets in Tarija and other Bolivian cities is on the rise. The Candelero Street Kids Ministry has rented a building and opens each day for children to come and have a safe place to do their homework, have bible lessons, have a large, healthy meal and receive counselling from the staff. In addition to the drop-in center, Candelero Boys’ Home is open to boys who have been abandoned or have left their families out of desperation to escape poverty. It is a residential home outside of Tarija.
