Machaqa Amawta Foundation
The Machaqa Amawta Foundation focuses primarily on the indigenous population in the rural and peri-urban districts of the Department of La Paz. Its aim is to improve the population's living conditions. The foundation's core areas of activity are intercultural education and agricultural production, and it also works to strengthen indigenous village communities. The Machaqa Amawta Foundation was established in La Paz as a 'civil association' in 2005. The association is supported by various foreign sponsors: the Liechtenstein Development Service (LED), Christian Aid (UK), IBIS (Denmark) and Misereor (Germany).
