Where does my money go?
Amigos de Potosi always have a variety of different projects underway in and around Potosí. One of them is Caracoles, a project to build a large water cistern (15,000 litres) for an already existing out of school care on the Cerro Rico. It provides children living on the mountain, mostly with their widowed mothers, with a breakfast in the morning, a good lunch (it’s their main meal) and after school tuition in the afternoon.
