Jemima's fundraiser for Bolivia
Jemima is raising money for La Guardaria Buen Samaritano, a daycare centre in santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
Located in a poorer region of Bolivia, this centre promotes welfare, spiritual development, and early years education to over 100 children between the ages of one and five. Though it is government supported, the nursery is heavily reliant on donations as it aims to offer quality childcare to poorer families for a significantly lower price. As a result, it is largely oversubscribed and when all the children sleep at midday, there are often many children squashed onto one mat in order to accommodate them all.
Jemima is hoping to raise money to help the nursery buy 80 camp beds for the children to sleep on more comfortably and safely. Sleeping on the floor, particularly during the colder months, is not ideal.
