In Bolivia we search for housing solutions that will contribute to the exercise of the Human Rights to increase adequate housing and reduce slum housing. 31% of homes accommodate three or more people per bedroom.

The level of poverty in Bolivia is one of the highest in the continent.

The country suffers from stark differences in living conditions between the higher and lower incomes of the population who live in slum housing that lack the most essential facilities.

We have been working with the impoverished people in Bolivia for 28 years. We maintain the search for housing solutions that will contribute to the exercise of the Human Rights to adequate housing and reduce slum housing.

According to the government, the housing deficit is 250,000 houses across the country and they have set the goal to build 25,000 houses per year, which means this need will be supplied in 10 years.

But as population growth is increasing constantly, deficits will continue to exist beyond the 10 years of work planned.

Our projects in Bolivia include: Construction of safe shelters, renovation of damaged homes and providing information sessions and resources for communities on land & women’s rights. We also work to provide communities with access to and information on clean water and safe hygiene practices through our WaSH projects.
