MAIN SECTORS OF ACTIVITY

The municipalities of Patacamaya, Umala and Ayo Ayo, Aroma Province and the municipality of Luribay, Loayza Province, Department of La Paz.

 

CEDIA NGO (Centro Educativo y Desarrollo Integral del Altipiano), Municipality of Patacamaya, Municipality of Ayo Ayo, Fundación Munasim Kullakita (FMK), Human Mobility Ministry (PMH) of the Bolivian Catholic Episcopal Conference.

 

Thanks to a contribution from the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, PCN has been operating in Loayza Province to support the food security of the rural population of various communities, through the construction of water systems and training for farmers to manage them, as well as the provision of technical assistance to improve agricultural production and marketing.

 

On the Andean Plateau, in the municipalities of Patacamaya and Umala, it has been operating to support food safety through the construction of greenhouses and community wells to combat insufficient and poor nutrition, particularly among children of school age, with contributions from Cooperazione Decentrata Piemontese (the Piedmont Regional Authority and municipalities). More than 20 large greenhouses have been constructed from adobe and polycarbonate in as many primary schools, in order to produce vegetables that are not otherwise available to supplement the diets of the children, to inform and train mothers and fathers on the use of vegetables and to propose production models that can be replicated by the families.

 

Recently, in collaboration with the municipalities and the CNAPE, Consejo Nacional Agropecuario de Producción Ecológica, which comes under the Ministerio de Desarrollo Rural y Tierras, possibilities are being explored of promoting the large-scale construction of family greenhouses, by providing the necessary technical assistance for both production and partial marketing, in a framework of sustainable and organic agriculture. 

 

Thanks to the Waldensian Church (Union of Methodist and Waldensian churches), a water system has been constructed for the community of Salviani (Ayo Ayo), to irrigate and reclaim areas of community land not previously capable of continuous production. The project will continue throughout 2015 to provide irrigation for all the community plots.

CURRENT PROJECT

Construction of family greenhouses to improve food security through the consumption of greens and vegetables and marketing of the surplus in Aroma Province, Bolivia

 

The overall objective is to contribute sustainably to the reduction of food insecurity and the vulnerability of indigenous families of the Aymara ethnic group on the Bolivian plateau, while enhancing family farming and the role of women. The specific objective is to increase the availability of food, particularly vegetables for consumption and marketing, through the construction of family greenhouses, as a tool for increasing the food security of families in 15 rural indigenous communities in the municipalities of Umala and Patacamaya in the Province of Aroma, La Paz Department, in Bolivia, by identifying and establishing a sustainable and reproducible system.
