Bolivia

IBIS worked in Bolivia from 1984 to 2014. We helped, in particular, indigenous peoples’ organisations in becoming strong democratic players and skilled administrators of the indigenous peoples’ territories. Through our partners, we helped impoverished children receive a good education in a language they understand and with content that values their culture. Moreover, IBIS worked towards moderating the effects of climate change and the destruction caused by the mining industry. IBIS has closed it's office in Bolivia, but many of its projects are being transferred to other NGO's. Please read below for information about our work until the closure.
