'Vivir bien' - working with communities to shape development in Bolivia
Thu 4 May 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Nikki Evans has worked as CAFOD’s Bolivia Programme Officer for over four and half years. A large part of her time with CAFOD has been spent living in La Paz working alongside communities and local Bolivian organisations.
She will be sharing experiences about the Andean concept of “vivir bien”, which is roughly translated as “living well”, and how organisations work with communities to ensure that they are shaping their own development in line with their own understanding of what that means.
Nikki has also worked as international observer protecting human rights defenders in Colombia and for other international human rights organisations based in the UK. Before arriving in Bolivia completed an MA at the Peace Studies Centre in Bradford University.
