The Danish NGO Ibis has just launched a new collaboration with Danish food entrepreneur and celebrity Chef Claus Meyer. Meyer recently visited Bolivia where he and ibis looked into the possibilities of opening a "food culture and cooking school" for indigenous people of Bolivia. The project will train 15-19 year olds recruited locally with help from several Bolivian social organizations. Bolivia, which is South America's poorest country, has a large and
vulnerable indigenous people, but also a fantastic commodity basis. Meyer wants to explore how Bolivians "can use food, as an effective instrument in providing unskilled and
disadvantaged young people a reason to be a generation of grassroots
entrepreneurs who will be able to lift their families and communities
out poverty and hunger."
