External audit - full marks for Voix Libres

An international auditing body recently gave Voix Libres full marks, both economic and social -  an outstanding result for corruption-ridden Bolivia.

"“[...] This is our first encounter with a non-governmental organisation like the Voix Libres Foundation, which has been totally open and truthful in managing the grants made it by the Canton of Geneva, all of which have now been used. Voix Libres is 100% effective in the use it makes of its resources. [...]

It must keep up the good work, and continue to display that generosity which has already helped to reduce poverty, hardship and violence, not just in the Potosi, Oruro, La Paz and Cochabamba regions, but also at national level in Bolivia [...]”  More...
