Bolivia Public Expedition
October 17 - 24, 2020
Volunteers participating in CHOICE Expeditions will arrive at La Paz (El Alto International Airport – LPB) and depart from La Paz (unless indicated otherwise). All expeditions take place in the rural villages of the La Paz Department in the Altiplano region with increasing elevations between 11,000 - 13,000 feet above sea level. Frequent expedition projects include the construction of village schoolhouses and the installation of water systems. You are invited to join CHOICE in building people, not just projects!
