Bolivia: Plan for the Future


Save the Children will continue to expand community-based activities that contribute to improved health, education, food security and nutrition for children in Bolivia.

These include:

An integrated food security initiative that will use strategies such as behavior change to help families increase and then sustain their household incomes and closely monitor the nutritional status of their children;

A multi-faceted adolescent program that will expand the Making Decisions model to the Lake Titicaca region, as well as maintaining its current national presence;

A newborn health focus on post-natal care; and

The expansion of the School Health and Nutrition program will now include all 49 of the public elmentary schools in Caracollo, in addition to more rural schools in the Department of Oruro, and schools in the cities of La Paz and Oruro.
