Update on Bolivia

Dear Friends and Families,

We are writing to give you an update related to Bolivia. As you may be aware, last Sunday presidential elections were held in which Evo Morales was running for a controversial 4th term. Final votes were counted earlier this week which have shown Evo Morales as gaining the win over opposing parties. There has been suspicion of voter fraud which has engendered protests around the country. We are monitoring the situation on the ground for any further developments.

As we have noted previously, student health, safety, and security are our top priorities at Dragons. We carefully monitor the situation in each of the locations where we run programs, drawing on a number of different resources. Among these resources are ISOS (our risk management provider), the Department of State’s Overseas Security Advisory Council, and our field staff on the ground. We are monitoring the situation with the Bolivian elections locally and are in touch with local contacts to receive additional information. Please feel free to reach out to me should you have questions.
