The professional development courses at the House of the Future were in full swing in April and enjoyed great demand. Adapting to the current situation, we have put together a hybrid programme of diverse courses in the current semester. Most of the course content is taught virtually.

The risk of infection due to the Covid-19 pandemic has not been eliminated.

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 ...

There were also more technical courses. For example, ...
