Pintar en Bolivia (PEB) is a Dutch NGO based in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It was established in 2017 by the Dutch Art Therapist Lisan van der Wal who felt inspired by the story of Thomas, a teenager who found refuge and comfort in the arts while unsuccessfully fighting cancer. The non-profit brought to Bolivia an eye-opening practice to compensate for the lack of psychological support: Art Therapy.

Over the last 4 years, PEB has carried out several Art Therapy projects for severely burnt children, children with cancer, and women in vulnerable situations. The Covid-19 pandemic shook the entire non-profit industry forcing us to face the harsh reality that many communities were going through. This difficult period enabled us to provide impactful projects for the communities and redefine our purpose.

As of 2022, we are focusing our energy and ambition on strengthening youth’s leadership skills, so they can implement projects fostering social, environmental, and economic development within their communities.Visit website »
