Mano a Mano’s Center for Ecological Agriculture: Water, Food, Health and Education: A Journey to Learn
Mano a Mano and Harbortown Rotary invite you on a 10 day trip to Cochabamba, Bolivia - October 2023. Through this unique travel experience you will meet high Andean subsistence farm families and be immersed in their daily lives. The trip will provide an up-close view of how Mano a Mano teaches farming practices that protect the fragile natural environment and improve health. Travelers will take part in Mano a Mano’s distribution of medical and school supplies collected by Minnesota volunteers each year. Throughout this journey, you will see projects that accomplished our original vision and so much more.
 
What is Mano a Mano International? Mano a Mano is a grass-roots non-profit organization based in St. Paul, MN whose mission is to create partnerships with poor Bolivian communities that improve health and increase economic well-being.
 
Who can go on this trip? Adults and children who are accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome. Interpreters will be available throughout all trip activities.

Where will we stay? Mano a Mano will reserve a block of rooms in a comfortable, clean hotel in Cochabamba. Private single or double rooms are available.
 
Where will we go? Our destination is Cochabamba, Bolivia’s third largest city, located in the Andes at about 8,000 feet above sea level. We will also travel to rural communities that tourists rarely visit.
