In this context, ARCHsharing proposes, in partnership with the humanitarian association TECHO Bolivia, the construction of a kindergarten in a district on the periphery of the city of Santa Cruz. Located in the district of La Arboleda de Fatima, the project will have to meet many social, constructive and economic challenges while offering the children of the district a playful and quality place. Today, the demand in this neighbourhood represents more than 500 children between the ages of 2 and 5 who do not have access to a kindergarten.

The project site is located within the perimeter of the La Arboleda de Fatima district school. Its strategic location will allow students to accompany their younger siblings to the kindergarten and no longer miss school days for they have to look after them when parents can’t.

The site includes two disused buildings that used to form the old school, as well as a large covered sports field that is rarely used today. In order to accommodate as many children as permissible, a rehabilitation of the two existing buildings and a 100m2 extension will be necessary. A landscaping proposal will complete the project to provide an outdoor courtyard for children.
