Hormigón Armado

The name Hormigón Armado, which means both reinforced concrete and armed ant, represents the resilience of the street people in La Paz, Bolivia.

The goal of this organization is to provide children working as shoe shiners (lustrabotas) with an education so that they have alternatives to life on the street.

In the meantime, the program helps them supplement their meager income by acting as tour guides to show visitors La Paz as only they know it.

100% of the proceeds of the tour is given to the shoe shiner guide.
