With whom?

The parish in Italaque has a population of about 3000 indigenous Aymara, who live in a vicious cycle of social exclusion, and whose scarce resources are generated by subsistence farming (producing potatoes and potato products, grains, and raising alpaca, llama, cattle and sheep). Monthly income is about 200 bolivianos (20,50 euros or $28.50) per family, in a country where the minimum monthly wage is 815 bolivianos. For this reason, parents can't provide what is necessary for the physical, cognitive, emotional, educational or human development of their children. Without opportunities for human and professional self-realization, the population is resigned to living in a situation of social and economic injustice in which they find themselves. Spurred by illiteracy, alcoholism, rural exodus and massive migration, family violence, loss of basic values, etc., this vicious cycle especially puts infants, girls and women at risk, and adversely affects future generations.
