I came here to mine gold in 1991 and loved the country. Returned the next year and helped build a school in Trinidad. Came back and forth for 5 years. Decided to retire here so went back to the States and worked until I retired.

Would like to hear more of your expat story!
by: BoliviaBella.com

I'm fascinated and would love to hear more about how gold mining brought you to Bolivia, what's kept you here so long, what you love or don't about living in Bolivia :)

If you'd like to share your full expat story, we have a short questionnaire we've been emailing to expats in Bolivia. It has 20 questions designed to give future expats a taste of what life may be like in Bolivia. You can answer all or just some.

If you would like to share, please send me (webmaster) a private message using the form on this page: Tell Bella, so I can email it to you.

Also, if you haven't done so already, please join me and other expats on our Bolivia Bella group on Facebook.

Invest to Bolivia like Bangladesh
by: Anonymous

In Bangladesh improved sanitation in small and emerging towns consists largely of latrines and septic tanks. A major part of the human waste from these facilities is dumped untreated in waterways or on marginal land, harming the livelihoods and health of the poorest. Without proper faecal sludge management improved sanitation and hygiene is unattainable.

“Demonstration of pro-poor market-based solutions for faecal sludge management in urban centres of Southern Bangladesh” is a project of SNV Netherlands Development Organisation and Khulna City, Khulna Water and Sewerage Authority and WaterAid Bangladesh. The project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK Department for International Development.
