Mission & Purpose


Sustainable Bolivia’s mission is to enact sustainable development and environmental conservation in the Bolivian Amazon by supporting and partnering with community-led initiatives.

Sustainable Bolivia uses a comprehensive approach to environmental conservation poverty alleviation in the Bolivian Amazon. We do this through a three-pronged approach: 1) community ecotourism initiatives to enable local residents to be stewards of the land and its biodiversity; 2) conservation, reforestation and resource-management projects 3) environmental education and research. We also place volunteers in mutually rewarding and impactful placements with local NGOs in the nearby city of Riberalta.
