Kory Wawanaca Children's Home
The Kory Wawanaca Children’s Home is so much more than a home – it’s a family. It’s a place where children regain their childhood, and a place where Gods love abounds.
Kory Wawanaca Children’s Home has two locations in Bolivia:
Tacachia: Our home in the village of Tacachia is nestled deep within the Andes Mountains of Bolivia, South America. With its rural setting, one room school house, and organic farm, this home provides a safe and healthy environment for children ages 3-14. Our home in Tacachia is a rehabilitative haven where the children are healed through agriculture, nature, tranquility and affection. They are given structure through a daily routine of chores, education, and play.
Ovejuyo: Our home in Ovejuyo, located on the outskirts of La Paz, is the second phase of our program. This home is for 6-12 graders who have graduated from our school in Tacachia and continue their education and vocational preparation in La Paz. This home is where our teenagers take what they have learned in Tacachia to the next level. Their self-confidence is strengthened through extracurricular activities, educational support, and continued spiritual guidance.
All children arrive at Kory Wawanaca Children’s Home under a court order. We work closely with the Bolivian Child Protective Services and the Methodist Church of Bolivia to insure that we are giving our children the best possible quality of care.
Our legal commitment to our children is to the age of 18, but our Christian commitment is lifelong. We want to support our children through higher education, finding a job, forming a family, or whatever their futures might hold.
We believe all of our children are more precious than the finest riches and jewels of the world. We know that in God’s eyes, even at our worst, we are more precious than gold.
Since its beginning, Kory Wawanaca Children’s Home has depended on the generosity of individuals to develop our program. We continue to depend on the support of individuals like you to meet the needs of our children physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Your prayers and financial contributions are vital for the continued success of the Kory Wawanaca Children’s Home. Your support of our children gives them more than just food, clothing, and shelter – you help create a family, and for that we say, “Thank You”.
“And whoever welcomes a child like this in my name welcomes me.”
More Than Just a Home, It’s a Family
