Apoyo Para el Campesino-indigena del Oriente Boliviano (APCOB)
APCOB, Support for the Peasant-Indigenous of the Bolivian East, is a non-governmental humanist organization founded in 1980. From 1978 it led to meetings between the Isoseño-Guaraní, Ayoreo, Chiquitano and then Guarayo peoples, which led to the creation of the Confederation of Indigenous Peoples of Bolivia, CIDOB. APCOB currently co-executes projects of sustainable management of natural resources with indigenous communities, and carries out communication and intercultural education projects.
They are a non-profit Civil Association that promotes the integral development and full exercise of the individual and collective rights of the indigenous peoples of the Lowlands of Bolivia.

The indigenous peoples of the Lowlands fully exercise their individual and collective rights, being protagonists of their own social, economic and cultural development, manage their forests in an integral and sustainable manner, achieving greater participation and integration in national life.
