BOLIVIA WELCOMES THE VOLUNTEER MINISTERS GOODWILL TOUR FOR THE FIRST TIME
The people of two of Bolivia’s most important cities have the benefit for the first time of the VM Goodwill Cavalcade and its practical Scientology tools to improve all areas of life.
In keeping with its mandate to reach all corners of the globe, the Volunteer Ministers Goodwill Cavalcade arrived in Bolivia for the first time at the end of 2017.
The tour started in Bolivia’s capital of La Paz, the highest capital city in the world, nestled in the Andes at more than 11,900 feet (3,500 meters).
To announce their arrival and invite all to their tent, the Volunteer Ministers were interviewed on Bolivia TV’s Viva la Mañana (Long Live the Morning) program. Following this, Paceñisima TV interviewed volunteers and presented the tent’s panels containing information from the 19 Tools for Life courses.
Aside from those visiting the tent and learning of the Tools for Life, the VMs reached others by holding seminars at the Copacabana Educational Unit and the Fe y Alegría school, where the director issued a certificate for the “important contribution to the benefit of our students.” At the Universidad Pública de El Alto (Public University of El Alto), after a VM seminar, two teachers requested the full program be delivered. The VMs further delivered to the Municipal Civil Defense office and Mixed Martial Arts Gym. In total they helped 3,300 people in La Paz.
At the Universidad Pública de El Alto (Public University of El Alto), after a VM seminar, two teachers requested the full program be delivered.
Their second stop was Bolivia’s most populous city, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. The VMs were again on two TV stations, Activa TV and Bolivia TV, and opened the VM tent in the city’s main square. The vice president of the National Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs cut the ribbon and more than 1,000 were helped.
The El Alto Municipal Secretary for Citizen Security issued a recognition to the Scientology Volunteer Ministers for their valuable contribution and “the work they do for the benefit of the population.” The recognition further stated a commitment to continue to work with VMs “for the purpose of the development and welfare of the inhabitants of our city.”
