Here's the visual storytelling of our first mission in the field as EUAidVolunteers within the framework of the project "Qnas Soñi", managed by GVC Bolivia and Cebem (Centro Boliviano de Estudios Multidisciplinarios), financed by the EU.

During our visit, we met the Chipaya community, introduced ourselves to the local authorities and population, planned next months' activities as collaborators in the project implementation.
