3 Events, 3 Successful Projects in Bolivia


Published on

On April 20, 2013 Mano a Mano hosted its 4th annual Festival Bolivia event. The focus of the event was to support Mano a Mano's distribution program to ship donated surplus supplies from the US to support our projects in Bolivia, as well as to recognize our local heroes.

In our first 3 years, Mano a Mano was able to complete 3 new projects thanks to the support of Festival Bolivia attendees.
