THE HISTORY OF FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY IN BOLIVIA
Here is a look at the history of our organization in Bolivia:
In 1978, FH started serving in Bolivia by helping those impacted by the El Niño phenomenon in the Lake Titicaca area.
In 1983, FH responded to the drought that impacted communities in the high plateau region.
From 1989 to 2009, FH supported the development of the country through infrastructure projects, leadership training, boosting agriculture, promoting health and education, and providing a focus on food security.
From 2009 to 2013, FH implemented a Child Development Program, addressing malnutrition challenges and promoting a biblical worldview in all activities.
Since 2013, FH has worked under the Child-Focused Community Transformation (CFCT) model, responding to God’s call, “Together, let’s free Bolivian children of malnutrition.” This model works with communities through health and nutrition projects, income generation activities, agriculture programs, and projects that provide educational opportunities and access to clean water.
