Due to the high canine population in Ushpa Ushpa and that most families let their dogs roam in the streets, there is a higher risk of rabies than in other communities. This makes the annual vaccination campaign all the more important in our area, an area where only Proyecto Horizonte is offering this service. On Sunday 12 of June, Proyecto Horizonte staff with help from the local universities vaccinated 5688 cats and dogs. A massive effort!

Debido a la gran población canina en Ushpa Ushpa y que la mayoría de las familias dejan sus perros salir a la calle, hay un riesgo mas grande de rabia que en otras comunidades. Por esta razon, la campaña antirabica anual es tan importante en nuestro barrio, un barrio donde solamente Proyecto Horizonte ofrece este servicio. El dia domingo 12 de junio, el equipo de Proyecto Horizonte ha vacunado 5688 gatos y perros de la zona. Muy buen trabajo!!

For historic reasons ‪#‎Bolivia‬ celebrates Mother’s Day on May 27. This date commemorates the Battle of the Coronilla which took place on May 27, 1812, during the Bolivian War of Independence. In this battle, Bolivian women, now referred to as Heroinas de la Coronilla, showed resistance to the Spanish army. Last Friday, Proyecto Horizonte’s staff got together to celebrate this special day.

En Bolivia el Día de la Madre se celebra el 27 de mayo por razones históricas. Esta fecha fue elegida en conmemoración a las Heroinas de la Coronilla, las mujeres bolivianas que enfrentaron al ejército español en la Batalla de la Coronilla durante la Guerra de Independencia de Bolivia en 1812. El viernes pasado el personal del Proyecto Horizonte ha festejado a las mamas del equipo.

Another inspiring story about Bolivia's brave women: meet the Cholitas, the indigenous ‪#‎women‬ of ‪#‎Bolivia‬, who are pile-driving their way into the previously male-dominated sport of wrestling, skirts and all.

Kudos to these brave ‪#‎women‬! Known as Cholitas, the women have climbed mountains more than 6,000m high and are aiming higher.

Last Friday Proyecto Horizonte’s staff celebrated Labour Day spending a beautiful afternoon at a country house by a lake, La casa del arquitecto. They enjoyed the picturesque scenery and a delicious Bolivian meal. Most importantly, they took full advantage of the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company in a non-work setting playing volleyball, badminton and dancing.

El personal de Proyecto Horizonte festejo el día del trabajo, pasando una linda tarde en una casa de campo, La casa del arquitecto en la Angostura. Se disfrutó del hermoso paisaje y de una deliciosa comida boliviana. Principalmente aprovecharon la oportunidad para disfrutar de la compañía de sus compañeros fuera de las actividades laborales. Jugaron vóley, bádminton y bailaron.

Good news from ‪#‎Bolivia‬: Bolivia Bans Men Violent Against Women from Public Positions. Any Bolivian who wishes to apply for public positions will now have to provide a document proving they have no criminal record of gender violence, according to an agreement signed Wednesday between the Justice Ministry and the Magistrate Council.
