Discoveries of a Wanderer

Listening to the Voices of Bolivia

What do Bolivians hope for when it comes to their communities and families? Check out what ideas they’ve shared with me about the future!

  • High-quality health care for their children
  • Stop and reverse child malnutrition in their communities
  • Higher wages for the products they produce
  • That their special needs children are loved and treated well
  • For Women’s Empowerment groups to continue to work towards gender equality


Sound familiar? The more I travel, the more I feel that people around the world are surprisingly alike.
