Finding New Life
In search of fertile soil, the peoples of the Mejillones cooperative migrated from the drought-stricken Altiplano region of Bolivia carrying with them small coffee plants from the town of Coroico. In the lush, rainy forests of the Yungas region, they established a thriving livelihood. The Mejillones farmers are now able to focus on their land and the well-being of their people, sponsoring reforestation projects, public health, education and gender equity.
