WVD Embarks on a Journey to
Getting To Equal
In Bolivia for 2023

Our central mission is to ignite the spirit of equality within
men, encouraging them to stand as true partners in the
creation of families

Discover how we plan to achieve this objective through the activities described below

While most of the programming is taking place in the host nation Bolivia, in anticipation of our commitment to bring our headquarters to Zambia in 2024, we are developing parallel events in Lusaka and Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

In addition, WVD is launching its WVD Academy and will be producing a basic course in vasectomy services that will be available on our soon to be released educational platform.
