As the slogan of Musol says: "Solidaridad para la mujer!" ("Solidarity for the women!"). This organisation recognises the problems that the Potosi mines represent for the women involved with them. Many have lost husbands at an early age, due to the dangerous conditions and toxic chemicals of the mines, and stuggle financially as a result. Those who work in the mines are often poorly represented and lack information on their basic human rights.

Musol strives to educate the women of the mines, along with their children, in the hope of ending the awful social conditions that surround them. They offer weekday schools for the children and weekend education for the women. They also provide a much needed centre for social interaction between the wives and widows of miners, as well as offering social support and legal representation when it is needed.

Volunteers can help out with any part of the organisation from working with the children, helping run social events for the women or even simple office work. There's no minimum period of volunteering, Musol is thankful for any support, but a minimum of a week is probably needed to fully get to grips with what they do.
