Photo Gallery: "Vouchers for Work" in Bolivia

A severe drought has plagued the El Chaco region of Bolivia, withering the crops of more than 10,000 Guaraní families. Guaraní women, with the assistance of WFP, built a communal garden through WFP’s ‘Vouchers for Work’ programme. In this photo gallery, the women are receiving their vouchers and ready to exchange them for nutritious food.

Overview

Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in Latin America: of its 9.5 million population, two thirds overall – 80 percent in rural areas – live below the poverty line.
