Humanity & Inclusion in Bolivia
Humanity & Inclusion has worked in Bolivia since 2011 to prevent disabilities and promote self-reliance and social inclusion of people with disabilities.
Bolivia is regularly affected by natural disasters and the effects of climate change on agricultural activity are already visible, hindering the economy of the country.
Despite a program of social and economic reform, the country still struggles with widespread poverty and social exclusion. Inequality persists and people with disabilities remain marginalized.
Our Current Work
Humanity & Inclusion’s team in Bolivia is composed of 12 national staff, 1 expatriate and a country director. The team works diligently to:
- Promote socio-economic inclusion
- Provide functional rehabilitation
- Assist with inclusive disaster risk management
Humanity & Inclusion enables community members with disabilities to access decent employment by:
- Building the capacities of institutions working in the field of disability and inclusive employment
- Providing inclusive employment support to local employers
- Conducting awareness-raising activities to proliferate a better understand of disability throughout the Quechua community
Humanity & Inclusion trains and provides educational tools to rehabilitation staff and doctors that work in these centers enabling people with disabilities to access the functional rehabilitation services they need in order to live full lives.

Humanity & Inclusion supports local officials and civil society representatives to ensure that they take the most vulnerable citizens, including persons with disabilities, into account in earthquake preparedness plans.
