Alternatives, in collaboration with Québec’s Ministère des relations internationales has organized the internship project: ’Arriba! A new voice for Bolivia’s llama breeders’ in its Quebec Sans Fronitères program. You can follow our interns presently in Bolivia by reading our interns’ blog.

Federación regional única de trabajadores campesinos del Alti-Plano Sur de Bolivia (FRUTCAS)

The FRUTCAS is an indigenous peasant’s union whose mandate is to defend the rights of the region’s indigenous and peasant workers. The organisation represents men and women quinoa agriculturalists and llama breeders and promotes dialogue between the government and peasant organisations through conferences and training workshops on local issues.
