World Neighbors’ work in Bolivia
WN works in the Vila Vila municipality of Cochabamba, Bolivia. Thanks to a generous grant from the McKnight Foundation, we are able to focus on nutrition, food security, access to clean water and developing Savings and Credits groups. A cross-cutting theme throughout all our work around the world is promoting gender equity. A big thanks to Nicholas Duncan, a dedicated volunteer who took these photos and produced the video.
World Neighbors’ work in Timor-Leste
In Timor-Leste, WN is focused on helping communities to adapt to and build resilience to climate change. Timor-Leste, and especially the Oecusse region, are vulnerable to natural disasters.
Part of this vulnerability is the lack of infrastructure which restricts access to WN communities. We are working diligently to provide community members with the necessary tools to establish reliable water sources and sustainable agriculture systems.

But the capacity of communities and local organizations must be strengthened so that they can sustain and spread those benefits.
