Make a difference in the lives of a Bolivian community
CEOLI, a center for disabled youth, was founded in 1986 as an oasis of caring, education, and help, and serves nearly 150 children and young adults in the Cochabamba area. As a non-profit organization, CEOLI relies on private donations and very minimal payments from the families of the mentally and physically challenged who are served.
For several years, a small group of severely disabled young artists, led by talented art teachers, has been hand-painting greeting cards of typical Bolivian scenes. The different card designs feature Bolivian people in native dress, depict rural families and landscapes, and capture the vivid colors of Bolivian patterns and traditions.
