The Best of 2015: Top Mano a Mano Blog Posts
With 2015 winding down, I wanted to highlight a few of the articles written at manoamano-new.mystagingwebsite.com that have been the most popular on the blog, based on Google Analytics data.
Looking through our blog and website, we are planning to share much more information and content about the impact we are having in 2016 (along with a website redesign). There is always a lot going on with Mano a Mano, and we want you to have a better idea of everything that you are helping make possible.

This article, along with 10 Years at Mano a Mano, were both in the top 5 most read posts.
Mano a Mano’s Center for Ecological Agriculture (CEA) provides low-tech, low-cost tools and training that improve food security and nutrition for rural Bolivian farmers, using an ecologically sound approach.
In many ways 2014 was a milestone year for Mano a Mano – we celebrated our 20th anniversary, completed our 50th school project and closed in on our 150th clinic project, dedicated one of the most challenging projects to date (a 37-mile road in El Palmar, Bolivia), shipped the most supplies from Minnesota to Bolivia (124,220 pounds) since 2007, and wrote a book, to name just a few – and 2015 has been no different (we’ll be posting our annual report for 2015 in the coming weeks).
It has been very rewarding to be a part of Mano a Mano for more than a decade! Even though this was written only about a month ago, it is one of the most popular blog posts.
In late October 2014, Mano a Mano dedicated one of our most challenging projects to date – a 37+ mile road project in El Palmar, Bolivia, a small community in the department of Chuquisaca, province of Sud Cinti, municipality of Culpina (there were 7 dedication celebrations, in 7 communities along the new road!). Since the road has been completed, there has been a lot of activity, thanks in large part to the new road.
