Bolivia struggles with severe poverty, inequality, food insecurity, and drug trafficking, as well as a recent surge of violent political instability. Our projects expand economic opportunity, improve democratic governance, and enhance peace and security in seven of Bolivia’s nine departments. We invest in projects that support sustainable livelihoods and increase civic engagement among indigenous people, women, and youth.
We awarded our first grant in Bolivia in 1973. Since then, we have provided $48 million through 297 grants to local organizations.
