Mano a Mano dedicated a new school in Kaspicancha Alta earlier this month! This is our 68th school project built in Bolivia since 2003. Kaspicancha is a community in the municipality of Tiraque, province of Tiraque, department of Cochabamba; it has a population of 870 (with a total of 1,682 residents in the area) and is located 49 miles from the city of Cochabamba. The new school consists of 4 classrooms, and will provide a more comfortable environment for local students to learn and for teachers to teach. The Mano a Mano school is replacing the old adobe classrooms where the 93 students and 4 teachers in the community were based previously.
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; the local community of Kaspicancha Alta and municipal government of Tiraque; and the US funders that provided the seed money that made this project possible! Construction began on November 21st, 2022.

Equipping the Completed School
When Mano a Mano dedicates a clinic or school project, it is always fully furnished and equipped. Many of the furnishings are constructed by Mano a Mano Bolivia in their workshop in Cochabamba.
