Materials needed to Apply

BiblioWorks does not charge a fee to international volunteers. However, given that we rely entirely upon donations and fundraising to keep us running day-to-day, we ask that you fundraise, where possible, a donation for the organization. This will go a long way towards helping us to reach our mission of bringing reading to the children of Bolivia. We can email you our fundraising guide for more details and suggestions for how you could fundraise, even if you are not currently based in your home country. BiblioWorks also does not provide any stipend or housing, however we are able to help volunteers locate low-cost housing. Please send your CV and a completed application form to volunteer@biblioworks.org. Feel free to send us any questions that you may have as we are keen to make the process of volunteering as clear as possible!
