The Fundación Pueblo (Spanish for: The Village Foundation) is a charity recognised under Bolivian law, which has been campaigning for more than 20 years for the most disadvantaged groups of the population. Children and indigenous women in rural areas of Bolivia are the focus of our projects. The Foundation is involved in the Yungas of La Paz, Potosi, Tarija and with migrant women in El Alto. 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.
For over 20 years the Fundación Pueblo is a respected partner in civil society through their development projects in Bolivia. The high degree of transparency and the joint participation of members of the target groups makes the Foundation somewhat unusual.
"So that people can live a dignified life in accordance with their social environment and nature, regardless of their social, cultural, ethnic origin, sex, creed, or political opinion." So it is written in our statutes that guide our work.
Socially committed and competent Bolivian employees of different social and ethnic backgrounds form the local team. It is supplemented by volunteers and interns from Europe who keep alive the cosmopolitan character of the foundation.
The work and projects of the Fundación Pueblo are regularly mentioned in the Bolivian media. In the German-language press examples of solidarity actions of our friends and supporters in Germany, Austria and Switzerland can be found.
Long-standing partnerships and mutual grown trust are assisting the building of the sustainability of our projects. Participation in networks promotes institutional learning and innovation.
Monthly word and picture reports ''Chaskis'' give regular updates from our projects. Once a year a detailed report of the Foundation is written with details from the public plenary meeting.
