Oxford Development Abroad and Mano a Mano

Next week a group of 6 students from Oxford Development Abroad (ODA), “a student-run charity that works to harness the energy, enthusiasm and resources of the Oxford student body to assist with small-scale, community-initiated development projects in the developing world,” will be traveling to Bolivia to work with Mano a Mano on our Demonstration and Training Center project in Cochabamba.

Second Project with ODA

This is the second year that Oxford students are working on the demonstration and training center; last year 3 students worked on the initial clearing and construction of the site.
