Our projects

Our projects

At Oasis Boliviano we believe that benefits of our enterprise should  extend to other members of our community, Teja Huasi, and surrounding areas.

In this sense we´ve initiated a participatory filter project in which we build BioSand Filters with our neighbors so that they can purify the water that they consume in their homes. We´ve also begun a program that aims to improve the disposal and recycling of solid waste as a way to protect health, not only human health, but also that of the Río Chico, the life source of our beautiful valley.

In our garden we are working to demonstrate organic production, recycling and composting. We have much work left to do and invite you to help us to protect and restore the little piece of paradise that we call home. We offer discounts on food or accommodation to volunteers who work with us for four hours or more.
