Mano A Mano International Partners
November 7, 2012

As a public health professional with experience in international health and development I can say firmly that Mano A Mano International Partners is extraordinary, perhaps even unique. The organization's strength comes from its truly bilateral collaborative framework. Funds are raised both inside and outside Bolivia, but virtually all of the organization's staff are themselves Bolivians. I believe this accounts for Mano a Mano's record of fierce dedication and staggering accomplishment over the past decade and a half. The organization's co-founder, Segundo Velasquez, has been nominated this year for a prestigious Opus Foundation prize and is one of three candidates for the grand prize of $1 million. While it would be well-deserved if Segundo won, he is one among the organization's many "unsung heroes" who have transformed rural health care, education and transportation in Bolivia.
