We are Casa de la Alegría, a young, enthusiastic organization that helps young people in Cochabamba, Bolivia become more self-reliant. We do this by developing practical and socio-emotional skills in and with young people. Aggression control, self-confidence building and encouraging self-reliance are some of the themes we work on. We have a heart for development cooperation and the vision that development projects must arise from demands of local society. This means that we work together with instead of just for our target group.
