Anne- Catherine Bajard 1987-1989 Bolivia- Podcast #95

Anne- Catherine Bajard went to volunteer with CUSO with her husband Jose Luis Pereira Ossio. This ended up being a 15 year relationship with a country and its people. Anne- Catherine worked in Potosi, a town on a high altitude plateau approx. 12,000 ft above sea level. Its the place that was and is mined for silver and gold.

Although her initial assignment did not work she helped to identify a need and applied her skills to working with domestic workers.

Her work has continued in Canada with Canadian Crossroads International, CCEDNET, Centre for Global Studies, Climate change in Senegal and more. She is fluent in English, French and Spanish.

I was fascinated by Anne- Catherine's history being a second generation person involved in international deveopment commitment to social change and belief in the best in each one of us.

Thanks so much for talking with me Anne-Catherine.
