Bolivia Unlimited

(see attached poster for more information)

Debating whether to go travelling or get work experience instead? Now you can do both.

Bolivia Unlimited is a social enterprise based in La Paz, Bolivia. We offer 1-3 month residential training programmes designed to introduce participants to print journalism and documentary production through internships in an international working environment. We also run Spanish immersion programmes, for those looking to learn or improve their Spanish whilst enjoying a cultural experience outside of the mainstream. Bolivia Unlimited was founded in 2010 by Bolivian journalists and Oxford graduates. Since then, over 230 talented individuals from 20 countries have worked with us, creating 68 issues covering everything from politics and art to football and gay parades. We've won the attention of TEDx, local sports stars and even the Bolivian Vice President.

BX Magazine - Print Journalism Programme: You will research and write your own articles or put together photo essays. You will be given extensive editorial support, as well as help with the production of your pieces, also taking part in designing the magazine. During the week you will take lessons in Spanish, journalism and photography, and will also attend newsroom sessions. The magazine is distributed for free across Bolivia and online for the rest of the world.

BX Doc Unit - Documentary Production: You will investigate, shoot and edit your own 3- to 5-minute documentary short. You will work with Bolivia-based video professionals, using professional equipment and editing software. During your stay, you will learn the basics of mini-documentary making, with production and theory classes, as well as one-on-one guidance. The shorts will be distributed through online platforms.

BX Spanish and Spanish Plus - Spanish Language learning: You will attend Spanish classes at a local language school, providing a crash course in language learning. With Spanish Plus, you will also receive guided immersion around La Paz with our teachers, allowing you to practise your skills outside the classroom. With both programmes, you will improve your speaking and written language skills, whilst being connected to the vibrant cultural organisation that is Bolivia Unlimited.

Is it Right for You?: You have a desire to converse in another language and an interest in discovering a new culture. You seek a learning experience not limited to verb tables and vocabulary tests. Graduates, current undergraduates and year-abroad students are all welcome; whether you are a complete beginner or have a faint memory of Spanish GCSE, all levels are encouraged. Come and learn language how it should be learned - interacting with native speakers and putting skills to the test in real life, everyday situations.  

Apply: We take up to eight participants every month, and as entry is oversubscribed (especially for the summer months), you should apply immediately if this is for you. A number of previous participants have been able to secure college funding to cover part of the programme and travel expenses involved.

More details are available in the attached information sheet, and on our website, where you can also read past issues and apply:

Cambridge Homeless Outreach Programme (CHOP) College Reps

The CHOP executive committee is constantly researching ways in which the student body can provide support for the homeless population in Cambridge. We are the contact point for students looking to volunteer, and we campaign and fundraise for the cause ourselves.

Many of you will have noticed the snowy weather this week - it is in times of severe weather conditions like these that volunteers are needed more than ever. Being a college rep for CHOP is fairly low commitment but still makes a huge difference. Reps are required to host at least one fundraiser within college per term, attend two meetings a term and are encouraged to promote and share CHOP information within their college. When shelters approach us with a need for volunteers, we will reach out to our reps first, before asking the wider student community.

If you wish to apply, please send an email to with the subject title ‘College Rep Application’. Our first rep meeting is on Monday the 23rd, so please try and apply before then.

Cambridge Development Initiative Recruitment Launch

** Passionate about impactful change? Keen to travel this summer? Want to work with an innovative and collaborative organisation? ***

Cambridge Development Initiative (CDI) is a student-led development CIO whose work is based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. CDI is a collaborative organisation, made up of Cambridge students and students from universities in Dar es Salaam. Each year, around 30 Cambridge students work with their Tanzanian counterparts on designing, implementing and managing its 4 development projects. CDI's projects run throughout the year, during which time our student volunteers - both in the UK and in Tanzania - work to sustainably evaluate and develop the work we do, and look at new opportunities to expand our projects. This culminates in a two-month period over the summer, where the UK students are based in Dar es Salaam, and live and work alongside their Tanzanian colleagues.

 CDI's current project streams are in four key areas:

·  WaSH: Piloting the world's first simplified sewerage and biogas system – a business model with frugal innovation and strong community engagement;

·  Health: Improving the accessibility and affordability of primary health care by implementing an entrepreneurial model of health product delivery;

·  Education: Empowering secondary school students to design and implement creative solutions to local problems and become innovative agents for change in their communities;

·  Entrepreneurship: Designing and running an eight week entrepreneurship course at the University of Dar es Salaam, equipping young entrepreneurs and networks with the skills and contacts they need to progress.
