Bolivia - Potosí

Responding to the dire living conditions of indigenous people living the high plains of Tinguipaya where the poverty index is 99.27%, this program builds on the successes of work supported since 2005. Having decreased child malnutrition by 11%, diarrhea by 8% and sheep mortality from 40% to 10%, the next 2 years will focus on increasing potato and broad bean production, irrigation, community wide vegetable production and marketing, and ongoing health and nutrition education in this long term response.

FRB staff member, Alex Morse, created this video about the work being done in Potosi.
