Quaker Bolivia Link, QBL is a Quaker response to poverty.

QBL is an international non-sectarian organization guided by the Quaker principles of integrity, equality, community, simplicity, and peace. Over the past 21 years, QBL has been working with the indigenous Aymara people from Bolivia supporting locally-developed, sustainable projects that enable economic development, provide access to safe, clean water and establish viable agriculture practices for food security among these indigenous communities in Bolivia.

Our History and Structure

Quaker Bolivia Link (QBL) was founded in the UK. After returning from a study tour of the region, 20 Quakers convened to address the tremendous poverty they had witnessed.
