New on the ground in Bolivia

Every two months we get to chat to the team on the ground in Bolivia about how things are going. Last month was more busy than usual as a new National Director joined our beneficiary project team at Performing Life. So in her own words, Marye Dijkstra, tells us a bit about herself. My name is Marye Dijkstra and I am from The Netherlands. From an early age I have always had a natural instinct to help other people, especially children, but above all:... Read More

Serious fun

Check it out, this is a great blog from UK based  communications and marketing professional Toby Hopwood. He and his partner have been travelling the world. That adventure took them to Cochabamba, Bolivia in 2013 and A Little Charitable Trust’s Quillacollo project. The following blog originally appeared on his own site Stories from other places and is worth checking out. Thanks for stopping by Toby! The smallest girl in the room brandishes... Read More

A few years ago my sister and I attended the launch of ‘A Little Charitable Trust’,... Read More

It’s Always Sunny in Cochabamba

Our second guest blog is a lifestyle piece on living, working and playing in Cochabamba. Thanks to our friend and volunteer Lily Young who spent time on the ground working alongside our beneficiary project. Trying to select a handful of photos to sum up the experience of living in Cochabamba is just about as difficult as attempting to describe it, so bear with me. I’m constantly reminded of various snapshots of the time I spent there and the fresh... Read More

One square meal

Guest blog on the importance of nutrition for little people. All thanks to the culinary queen, killer crafts-mistress and kick-ass mum, Lauren Butler of Needle & I Design.  Of all the things I thought I might find challenging about having a baby, feeding her well was not something that featured on my somewhat exhaustive list. It came as a big surprise then that I would be troubled with worries of making sure she was getting sufficient nourishment... Read More
