Yata, Bolivia | September, 2018
Where is Yata, exactly?
Yata is located in the Beni Department in northeastern Bolivia, bordered by Brazil to the north and east. Only 56 percent of households and businesses have access to electricity in Beni. Communities in this region are not well connected to the rest of the country due to unpaved roads, many of which are impassable in the rainy season during the months of December to February. The climate is hot and humid, it’s one of the wettest regions in Bolivia.
A Community of Big Dreamers
The people of Yata are an ambitious bunch. But before many of them can realize their dreams, they need access to reliable electricity.
