Quaker Bolivia Link is an international non-sectarian organization guided by the Quaker principles of integrity, equality, community, simplicity, and peace. Over the past 21 years, QBL has been working with the indigenous Aymara people from Bolivia supporting locally-developed, sustainable projects that enable economic development, provide access to safe, clean water and establish viable agriculture practices for food security among these indigenous communities in Bolivia.
The Altiplano, most of which is in Bolivia, is the second largest mountain plateau in the world, behind only Tibet. It’s elevation averages around 12,300 feet and it is higher than many peaks in the Rockies; there are few trees and crops are difficult to grow. Many of the residents are poor and lack access to safe water. QBL works with villages and local governments to bring clean water to each home.
