CARE started working in Bolivia in 1976 with the construction of rural water systems. Over the years, in order to respond to the emerging needs of the poor population, we expanded our program areas to include health care, education, infrastructure and agriculture development actions.
Currently, our portfolio in Bolivia includes projects in sexual and reproductive health and rights, alternative and intercultural education, HIV-AIDS, disaster preparedness, emergency relief, conservation and development, food security, rural income generation, primary health care, family planning, community organization, women’s empowerment, local economic development in urban contexts, child labor prevention, and natural resources management.
