Official Peace Corps Information about Bolivia

Located in central South America, Bolivia is one of the largest Andean countries with a land area roughly the size of Texas and California (approximately 1,098,580 square kilometers). La Paz (elv.12,000ft) is the national capitol and home to the executive and legislative branches of the government. The Supreme Court, however, operates out of the constitutional or judicial capital of Sucre.

Peace Corps returned to Bolivia in 1990, following an almost 20-year absence. Volunteers are working with national agencies, municipal governments, and private volunteer organizations on projects in agriculture, natural resources management, environmental education, microenterprise development, community tourism development, and water and sanitation.
