Just before the rainy season started in December, we were able to finish all the construction work we had started. Since then, we have mainly been doing office work, as many roads are currently impassable and villages cannot be visited.
Of course, administrative work is also part of every project. At the end of last year, year-end activities such as reports and financial statements were on the agenda.
Since January, we have been preparing numerous activities for this year. A lot of research is being done, workshops are being designed and material is being prepared. Manuals and handouts are being written so that the operational work can start as soon as the roads are passable again. The car is in the workshop and is being brought up to scratch.
In February, however, the first local expert workshop of the year was held in Micani, where, among other things, a rough plan for this year was drawn up.
The first major activity of the local expert network is a survey among the families on the topics of nutrition and agriculture in order to get to know the level of knowledge and the needs of the families better. The survey was developed jointly by the Bolivian staff and German volunteers and is currently being integrated into the smartphone monitoring app, which will receive a final update before the local experts conduct the survey digitally in Micani at the end of March.
We are on pins and needles and are looking forward to getting back to work in the countryside soon.
