Amigo Negro Jose

Amigo Negro Jose (name inspired by a South American anti-racist song) is a non-profit organization born in September 1992 from a chance meeting between Salmians (inhabitants of Vielsalm in the Belgian Ardennes) who love Andean music and Bolivian musicians who are proud of the Belgian interest in their folklore and culture.

Since then, from a small premises rented in 1993, the project has had the chance to develop and became in 1997 the "Casa de Niños Padre Jean-Marie Thomas".

Bolivia, cradle of the Tihuanaco civilization, is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. The Andes dominate the south-east of the country and are divided into two cordilleras that delimit the wide plateau better known as the Altiplano.

It is in this arid region, at an altitude of 4,000 meters, that the non-profit organization Amigo Negro Jose helps destitute children, orphans, street children and abandoned children in its reception center. Between 70 and 80 children aged between 3 months and 17 years old benefit from the casa. They receive 3 meals a day and the family and security concept allows them to have access to carpentry, gardening, hairdressing and music workshops. All of them have a schooling free from delinquency and extreme poverty.
