Mano a Mano’s school project in Chirusi is now 30% complete! The school will be two floors and six classrooms, and will provide a more comfortable environment for local students to learn and for teachers to teach.

Every Mano a Mano project is a partnership: thank you to our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Bolivia, who oversees the process of building schools from start to finish (Mano a Mano Nuevo Nuevo is also helping with this specific project); the local community of Chirusi Rosario and municipal government of Punata; and the US funders that provided the seed money that made this project possible! Construction began on October 12th, 2021.

Punata, Bolivia. It is a 1-hour drive southeast of the city of Cochabamba.
