PCI has been working in Bolivia since 1980, improving the health and well-being of children and families living in poor, rural communities. Today, PCI continues to increase the quality of life for Bolivia’s indigenous populations through targeted interventions in health, agriculture, the environment, education, water and sanitation, income generation and youth programs.
Recently, Alternative Gifts International provided funds to PCI for to build chicken farms in 10 of our Food for Education schools. These eggs provide each student with regular source of protein through eggs, as well as income for the schools through sales. Two of the schools even sell their surplus eggs to the municipal government, who then in turn provide them to other schools that do not have chicken farms.
This community process is a great example of how some of small grants can make a large impact!
