Musuq Sunqu

Musuq Sunqu, Quechua for “New Heart,” is a non-profit day care and after-school care center in Sucre serving poverty-stricken families who have recently emigrated from underdeveloped areas of the Bolivian countryside.  Musuq Sunqu children, ranging in age from 3 to 14, receive help with their schoolwork (including learning Spanish, for many of the children a second language), and also are fed three square meals and a snack every day.

Ana María Cardoso, Musuq Sunqu’s director, is concerned about the adolescent children served by Musuq Sunqu who are tempted to join local gangs.  In order to assist Ana Maria’s labor of love, Yapay Bolivia hopes to provide funding for an additional staff member in 2019 to enhance the capacity of Ana Maria’s team to ensure the children of Musuq Sunqu stay on track toward a healthy and successful life.
