Casa Alfa was the name of the first home for street girls of YWAM Bolivia’s Operation Restoration team. It opened in 1994 and was home to 21 street girls who stayed there from anywhere between 24 hours to 3 years! Sadly, it was forced to close as a residential home for street girls in May of 2001, mainly because of staff shortages, but has now been replaced by a new home, El Alfarero (meaning 'The Potter').
The home is run on Christian principles aiming to provide the girls with the means of getting off the streets and into the abundant life that Jesus came to offer.
In the meantime we also started a church, called Fuente de Vida (Fountain/ Source of Life). The reason being that we had found it very difficult to get the street kids involved in church life in any meaningful way. And so we want Fuente de Vida to be a church where people from any background can meet Jesus and have their lives transformed.
In March 2007 we handed over our responsibilities within Operation Restoration in order to concentrate full-time on the church plant.
