Young people in the Guaraní territories of Charagua and Gutiérrez have limited knowledge about their constitutional rights. Fundacion Centro Arakuaarenda (Arakuaarenda) creates local and regional organizations that reinforce community identity, encourage young people to articulate their needs, and promote proposals for inclusion in their communities. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Bolivia. Arakuaarenda’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
