Francisco in Bolivia

This was the house of one of the campesinos in a community called Vicuñayo in the Municipality of Yunchará that works with IICCA.

 

 

The municipality of Yunchará is located in the highlands. It has some of the most beautiful landscapes that I have ever seen. However, agricultural activity in the area requires a lot of work and campesinos in the community.

 

This picture was taken in the local school in Muñayo, a small campesino community in Yunchará. The school teacher has to travel from one community to the other to be able to teach the children in different communities.

 

The schools in Yunchará have very little resources, and most children drop out of school before finishing primary school.
