Schoolchildren from Groningen take action against child labour in Potosi

Isabelle, Maartje, Silke and Noor collected € 151,42 for their chosen goal: our computer/internet project in Potosí. Congratulations on this marvellous result! In light of a social internship for the Praedinius Gymnasium in Groningen they had to raise money by working with microcredit. First they had to set up a plan, then invest a microcredit (1 euro per person) and then organize activities/sell products and raise money for a good cause. They were very successful in doing so on Queen’s Day in Hoogkerk. The Praedinius had chosen Amigos de Potosí as a good cause for this year. We have a computer and internet project running at a high school and this way these youths help the students in Potosí, beautiful to see this solidarity! Through the computer/internet project we contribute to improving education in Potosí. Through this education youths get a better chance at a job and income. Because no one should be working in the mines, least of all the children!
