Mano a Mano is made up of 5 counterpart organizations focusing in different areas of community development – health, education, economic development, food security and nutrition, and more – with the same overall mission of “Partnering together – Hand in Hand – to transform the health and well-being of Bolivian communities in need.” One component that makes much of this work possible is the equipment, supplies, and vehicles that we own. We are able to better partner with communities because we have well-trained staff and the equipment needed to complete water reservoirs, water wells, roads, airstrips, and other large-scale infrastructure projects.

Working on the engine for our machinery used to drill deep water wells – July 2023

In this picture above from a few weeks ago, staff from our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Nuevo Mundo are working on the engine for our machinery used to drill deep water wells; these wells are done in partnership with rural Bolivian communities that are struggling to access sufficient water (they often have to pay for trucks to transport water into their communities).
