Guarani Liberty Initiative

As ACCESO expands its work in Bolivia, our man on the ground, Yerko Ilijic, has been working with the International Labour Organization and the Swiss Government Aid Agency to help free 900 Guarani families from indentured servitude.

Living for generations in virtual slavery, these indigenous people are being educated about their rights as an aid worker travels around the Chaco on a motorcycle courtesy of Proyecto ACCESO.

Check out these photos from a recent trip that saw Yerko nearly fall off the back of a truck and risk life and limb documenting this exciting new initiative.

Here the letters of suport and a full news report article from El Deber, a regular newspaper from Bolivia.
