QBL is an international development organization guided by Quaker principles and dedicated to reducing poverty among the indigenous peoples of Bolivia. QBL works with the indigenous people to fund, construct, and monitor community-based projects, in a non-sectarian manner, to improve food security, promote better health, and generate local income.
Sixty five percent of Bolivians are indigenous Andean people. They are poor and marginalized in their own country. They face many obstacles including poor soil, a short growing season and a lack of safe water for drinking and irrigation. There is widespread malnutrition.
