Words of the German Ambassador, Stefan Duppel, in La Paz, Bolivia on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of Fundación Pueblo:

The more than 300 municipal governments in Bolivia - most of them rural - can provide important impulses for the development and well-being of their citizens, thanks to important sources of income and a considerable degree of management autonomy. Therefore, the Municipal Elections called for March 7, 2021, constitute an ideal opportunity for citizens to participate in a reflection and debate on the ...

Back in October, we reported on the start of the construction of the vegetable gardens in the Guaraní community of Tentaguazu. Traditionally, the Guaraní in the department of Tarija live from fishing. Vegetables and fruit are expensive to buy in the nearest town. The high price for the Guaraní is not the only problem. In good conditions, it takes 3-4 hours to get to the city, and in the rainy season ...

A turbulent year is slowly coming to an end. In November, we were able to hand over certificates to another 148 graduates of the vocational training courses in El Alto. During the last few months, the women learned how to make salteñas, a Bolivian speciality, or how to bake bread, for example, partly digitally and partly in face-to-face classes. There were also more technical courses. For example, ...

Harvesting fresh vegetables in your own garden, for a balanced diet - is the objective of the new project that we started in October in the Guaraní community of Tentaguazu. Twenty-one families built their own gardens and a school garden with simple, everyday materials. We support them with professional help, as well as seeds and seedlings. Among other things, onion, broccoli, carrot, lettuce, radish ...

While the children in Germany were allowed to return to school to study after the summer holidays, the children and young people in Bolivia have been at home since mid-March. In rural areas in particular, such as in our boarding house in Tentaguazu, online lessons are almost impossible due to the lack of an internet connection. Since this month, the students in Tentaguazu have received support in learning. ...

The coronavirus pandemic still has a firm grip on Bolivia. However, we do not want to postpone our support for migrant women in El Alto. In recent months we have converted our offer of Vocadional Training courses to a virtual format and have expanded it. In August, the second semester of the program for the Promotion of Migrant Women in El Alto began, which will be carried out, for the first time, ...

Bolivia now officially has 83,361 people infected with the coronavirus (as of August 4, 2020). The black number of cases is likely to be much higher. An improvement in the situation is not in sight. Exit restrictions still apply and schools are closed. In addition to the economic consequences, this mainly affects children who have not been to school since mid-March. Throughout Bolivia, but especially ...

The situation due to the corona pandemic is getting worse in Bolivia. It is now believed that the first corona case had also occured in our home municipality of Yanacachi. Still, we want to share something gratifying with you this month. In June, De Yanira and Oscar, our team for the “Open Access” project, received many colorful pictures every day. A total of 60 schoolchildren with 140 works of ...

Children and adolescents in Bolivia are not going to school for more than 2 months. In rural areas, like Yanacachi, there is no online instruction either. At the same time, disinformation about the Corona Virus is high within the Bolivian population. This creates increasing uncertainty. The Governments are responsible for many measures related to the Corona Virus pandemic, but everyone can do something ...
