The Bolivia Industrial School is a volunteer-staffed, faith-based venture affiliated with the non-profit organization Gospel Ministries International. Students are not charged tuition and only pay a registration fee that is the equivalent of about $17. Despite these limitations, God has always provided for our needs and the school infrastructure has been slowly expanding. Plans for the future include further development of the agriculture program, additional staff housing, a maintenance building, installing a permanent electrical system, and finishing the girls’ dorm and classrooms. We had a fire get out of hand and burn over 7 of our buildings; a large portion of the buildings were made from wood with leaf roofs. The boys’ dorm, primary school, missionary houses and a part of our church were completely burned within an hour. So here we find ourselves in a position of having hardly any space for students or missionaries. This is why we are contacting you today. We have received several donations to help recover the loss, but we are still finding ourselves short of being able to complete the boys’ dorm and staff houses. So our current needs are as follows.
