Welcome to the Home Page of the El Alfarero Association in Bolivia. El Alfarero (‘the Potter’) has been providing services to meet the needs of young people and students since 2001, initially in the city of Sucre and more recently also in the city of Santa Cruz. Bolivia is a developing nation with huge social problems. Young people are often alone due to the absence of their parents, who travel to work in other countries, or because of their own migration to study at university. As a result, they often find themselves with problems, including depression, addictions, abuse, relationship breakdown, unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, amongst others. El Alfarero seeks to meet these needs on a deep level, impacting a generation of young people, and transforming lives of future leaders. El Alfarero is a community where lives are molded and transformed.
