The Street Youth Empowerment Project is a unique collaboration that brings together a U.S. based not-for-profit organization and a Bolivian initiative dedicated to working with high risk and vulnerable children. Health Bridges International (HBI) and Harmony of the Andes will partner on a two year pilot project to train and improve the capacity of a coalition of organizations serving the complex needs of youth living on the streets. The project will enhance the capabilities of Bolivian NGOs to prevent HIV infection and transmission in high-risk street youth.


Professionals from around the city of La Paz working through a coalition of street youth providers and organizations will be trained in, and provided technical assistance for, implementing evidence based practices for working with the unique needs of street youth and their vulnerability to infection and transmission of HIV.


In partnership with city wide network of street youth provider organizations, Health Bridges International and Harmony of the Andes will implement a novel project using soccer as an intervention to enhance and refine HIV prevention. Soccer has been proven to be effective mechanism for advancing awareness and promoting prevention around HIV/AIDS in countries where the sport is an integral part of the culture, as in the case of Bolivia.
