In the past three months, a lot has happened in the project. The trainings in the Escuelas de Campo continued as before. In the meantime, about 473 families are taking part in these trainings. And 183 families from 16 villages are involved in the cultivation of Tara. In addition, we were able to carry out a detailed monitoring of the project's progress and the situation in the families for the first time. For this purpose, a questionnaire was developed in advance and with the help of the monitoring app developed by Aktion Sodis, the survey was then carried out on site.
In addition, a community fund was set up to provide financial support to families who want to start their own business.
In our project work in Germany, we have also been focusing more on the issue of gender equality in recent weeks and are developing a strategy to achieve our goals in this regard. In the course of this, we also held an extensive workshop with our partner organisation to ensure that our ideas on this topic are the same.
Finally, there was a personnel change at our partner organisation on the ground in Bolivia. From now on, it is no longer Antonia Oporto but Lily Negrete who is responsible for the training of the families in the ECAs.
