Mano a Mano recently completed an expansion of a health clinic in Sumala and new schools in Litoral and Qhapajtala. Construction was delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions, but are now complete, and will improve access to health and education for their communities. Every project is a partnership: thank you to our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Bolivia, the local communities and municipal governments that participate throughout the process, and the funders that provide the seed money that kickstarts every project!
