The Tusoco Network is an organisation that associates and integrates Bolivian fair tourism indigenous and peasant community-based organisations, it provides services to develop its member organisations, and represents their interests in front of the State and other institutions.
The Tusoco Network supports the development of community-based fair tourism in Bolivia. It contributes to the economic development of the rural communities in the country.
We aim at putting an end to the communities’ marginality and isolation, by improving their means of communications and facilitating the contacts with organisations or persons interested in visiting or supporting them.
The vision of the Tusoco Network is to be recognised by peasant and indigenous organisations and by private and public actors of the tourism sector in Bolivia, consolidated as an instance of effective representation and provision of services for the development and promotion of community-based fair tourism, achieving successful organisations, with tours and tourist products offered at the national and international level, generating better economic development in rural communities.
We want to demonstrate that the communities are capable of creating alternatives and to reach the development of our villages by providing quality services, original and authentic tours.
The Tusoco network aims at supporting the development of initiatives and community-based fair tourism organisations in rural communities of Bolivia, especially rural and indigenous communities. Through tourism the communities seek to complement their income and contribute to improving their standards of living.
Our common objective is to rescue and value our natural and cultural heritage, so that the visitors as well as future generations can enjoy our wealth.
