Mission: Light up Bolivia
Volunteers from electric cooperatives in Missouri continued the effort to light up Bolivia this winter through a project called Brighter Bolivia. In December six volunteer linemen, including Jonathan Schussler from Osage Valley Electric Cooperative, traveled to Bolivia to build power lines for those living without electricity.
The electrification project is made possible through a partnership between the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s International Program with matching funds from the Cooperative Finance Corporation.
The first phase of the project took place Dec. 3-16 in a mountainous region of Bolivia in the state of Cochabamba at Chapisirca.
