The Fundación Pueblo

Fundación Pueblo (The Village Foundation) is a charity recognised under Bolivian law. We have been working for more than 20 years with and for the most disadvantaged sections of the population in Bolivia. Children and indigenous women in rural areas are the focus of our programs and projects. The Foundation works in the Yungas of La Paz, Potosí, Tarija and in El Alto.

Fundación Pueblo campaigns for human rights and equal opportunities with projects at the community level.  Our work has also found wide recognition beyond Bolivia. The current focus of our work is to provide access to basic education, technical education and civic information. Founders, employees, friends and supporters of the Foundation combine their social commitment with the aspiration to ensure the sustainability of programs and projects beyond our initial funding. Country and cross-cultural solidarity are the means and objectives of our work.

Access to civic information also during the coronavirus pandemic

With our “Informed Citizen Participation” project we promote access to civic education and relevant public information in the Yanacachi District. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, our work does not stop. With the online painting competition "Pupils help to slow down the spread of coronavirus", we fight against disinformation and to make known the measures to contain the pandemic.
