31 in 31In the first week or so of this series, we’ve given you a lot of words about where we work. Today, we’re going to take a visual break. Two years ago, ChildFund’s Documentation Officer Nicole Duciaume visited Bolivia and returned with fabulous photos.

“There is little substitute for seeing an area firsthand and speaking directly with the program participants; personal consultations are what sustain our commitment to the organization, the communities and the children,” Nicole wrote while on that trip.

Enjoy the view!
