Mano a Mano's counterpart organization Nuevo Mundo constructs a new 86.9km road in Cotagaita, Bolivia. The Cotagaita road project goes from 8,500 feet above sea level to 16,500 feet above sea level.
Prior to the completion of the Cayti-to-Sagrario connecting road, farmers traveled an astonishing 200 kilometers on a circuitous road through the mountains to reach the miner's market, a grueling 15-hour drive by truck. Many farmers walked across the mountains with their donkeys for three days to complete this journey. Now this important market lies within 15-25 kilometers of Cotagaita-area farmers, reducing their travel time to an hour.
