Meeting the needs of university students in Santa Cruz, Bolivia

We've been supporting university students in Santa Cruz since 2013. Our goal is to meet the needs of students holistically, through services like a café, counselling, and a library.

Our services

We meet the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of students in Santa Cruz through our services.

Our events centre gives an opportunity for businesses to invest in the youth of Santa Cruz, and generates revenue to allow us to keep serving.

Testimonies about El Alfarero Santa Cruz

"From the moment I walk through the door I feel at home. There is no better combination than good coffee and a lot of Jesus, and both things abound here!


I love sitting on the black chair to watch those who enter, and I see many of them return. I know that if they return it's because they also feel a bit of home here, where you don't have to be perfect to be happy."





Get involved and see lives transformed

God is using us to make a difference to the lives of those in Bolivia. We work with students and host events in our building every day, but none of it is possible without the gifts of prayer, time, and financial support which enable us to do what we do.

If your heart goes out to the people of Santa Cruz, here are a few ways you can get involved and make an impact:

In prayer

Prayer is the most important thing you can do to help us. You can pray for the students using our services, for the staff and volunteers who deliver them, for wisdom for our national and local leadership, and for financial stability for our organisation.

If you're in Santa Cruz, you can volunteer in our cafe and be a part of the community directly. If you're somewhere else but you feel a call to join us in Bolivia, get in touch and we can connect you with Latin Link or one of our other mission partners.
